That makes sense. I can wait for the result of what Wookey finds out
before I do much more with it.

Understood. I think based on the outcome of what we find out from the
kernel.org will determine this. If I can commit to kernel.org, it is a
moot point. If not, I can find a vendor neutral location. I just
started hacking away at mmsd on their gitlab instance and it evolved
from there.
