There's no reason you couldn't do both.

I have to be honest here and say that even if I'd seen your mail before
I applied Axel's patch there's no way I'd have held off on it due to
your unpublished work.  Axel's patch is here now, is a clear win and
he's got a strong track record of doing this sort of valuable cleanup
work.  In contrast you guys have been working for something like a year
to get the driver for one of your PMICs integrated and haven't yet sent
any patches for audio at all.  Without a track record of contributions
it's hard to have confidence that the changes you're proposing will
arrive when you say, or to have any idea about the level of difficulty
in integrating them.
