This is for a series that is currently in v7 and didn't get any feedback
at all yet. The history is:

v1: 2020-10-13, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20201013082132.661993-1-u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de
    no feedback at all

v2: 2021-03-01, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210301110821.1445756-1-uwe@kleine-koenig.org
    kernel test robot identified some issues

v3: 2021-03-01, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210301135053.1462168-1-u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de
    I added a few driver patches to show the benefit. (However in a way
    that the autobuilders don't understand, so there were some false
    positive build failure reports.)

v4: 2021-03-30, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210330181755.204339-1-u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de
    Got some feedback for the converted drivers by the respective
    maintainers. Some were indifferent, some found it good

v5: 2021-04-22, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210422065726.1646742-1-u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de
    Fixed a problem in one of the driver changes (i2c-imx), no feedback
    apart from pointing out a few typos, silence from the clk
    maintainers

v6: 2021-04-26, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210426141730.2826832-1-u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de
    Just the typos fixed, no feedback

v6 resend: 2021-05-10, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210510061724.940447-1-u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de
    no changes in code. Got some feedback from Jonathan Cameron

v7: 2021-05-10, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210510174142.986250-1-u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de
    Adress Jonathan's feedback, recieved some more acks from non-clk
    people

pull request: 2021-07-09, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210609202123.u5rmw7al4x3rrvun@pengutronix.de

Technically there are two maintainers for drivers/clk, Michael Turquette
and Stephen Boyd. It seems Michael is MIA and Stephen doesn't have the
capacity to address all requests.

Assuming there was some process for this, is there someone who is
willing to take responsibility here?

Best regards
Uwe
