Maybe yes, maybe not...

I don't care in which direction, whether to merge yours into aw2 or
aw2 into yours.  I just want to have a reasonable merge of two

Well, this is basically an option, and can be achieved later, too.
So, could you post the patches to ML for further reviews?

But before submitting patches, I recommend you to run once
scripts/checkpatch.pl (found in kernel tree) with your patches.
You'll find lots of coding style issues even by such a simple tool.
Then, check Documentation/CodingStyle and fix your codes again.

And, please remove the debug trace stuff unless you really need it in
future.  This decreases readability fairly much.
