Hi,

In the last year I worked on AT91 clock drivers and I would be available
for taking responsibility beyond AT91 clocks (if everyone's OK with this),
in whatever form the current maintainers and people in the audience would
agree, if any (co-maintainer or other forms that could be useful). The idea
is to help things progress as I also have patches waiting for feedback on
clock mailing list for almost 6 months.

Let me know if I can be helpful.

Thank you,
Claudiu Beznea
