This is a note to let you know that I've just added the patch titled

    staging: refresh TODO for rtl8712

to my staging git tree which can be found at
in the staging-linus branch.

The patch will show up in the next release of the linux-next tree
(usually sometime within the next 24 hours during the week.)

The patch will hopefully also be merged in Linus's tree for the
next -rc kernel release.

If you have any questions about this process, please let me know.

Also a fullmac/cfg80211 driver(r92su) is available.
