Oh and a big missing thing: please give your sign off and a proper
changelog text.  The sign-off is a line containing like

	Signed-off-by: Your Name <foo at bar.com>

The details about the sign off is found in
Documentation/SubmittingPatches, section "Sign your work".

The changelog is one of the most important part in a patch process.
Describe what the patch actually does and is provided for which
purpose.  In your case, which functionality works, what not, etc, are
good to mention, too.  It should be concise, but should provide enough
