I suspect Manu has included the stb0899 driver in his recent pull 
request, which by definition will have his sign-off. So, people are free 
to derive new drivers form his work providing they follow his licensing 
rules.

I have one of those boards. Assuming the stb0899 TT-3200 drivers are GPL 
- and signed-off for release, if nobody else offers to do this then I will.

If the API is approved then HVR4000 support will also be included with 
that merge.

I don't know the stb0899 driver specifically so I can't say whether it 
would be part of the initial merge, but I would expect it to follow 
shortly afterwards.
