That's up to you. The most important thing for any part of the kernel is
that it must have a maintainer. So if you are ready to keep the driver
up to date and handle the support requests that show, then you should
really submit it.

Patches should always be sent against the current version of the kernel
(i.e. git HEAD). Usually the latest packaged release will also do.

(Note that I haven't had time to review your latest version of the driver)
