Agreed.  300+ KB is not digestible at all.

Most maintainers like to see patches on the order of 10 KB; that much
is easy to review.  New drivers are rarely that small of course, but
that should give you some understanding of just how excessive this is...

But the fact that this one "driver" patch touched so many other files
outside its own directory is a dead giveaway that it's got something
pretty wrong...
