While neither of the two boards that are in the U-boot tree use this, my
custom board will make use of it, so I thank Timur for the submission.

I understand your reluctance to accept code that's not used by any of
the eval boards and SBCs that are part of the distribution.  There are
many reasons for taking this approach.

A crazy idea that I'm sure has been shot down before, but have you ever
considered making an 'unstable' branch available?  It could contain all
patches that pass the coding standards and perhaps a week of feedback.
If there was a big flashing sign that says "Use at your own risk", you
could offload the "RTFM" responses to others on the list, giving
yourself more time to move patches from unstable to stable.

Just a thought...
