Could you briefly list some issues you saw? Or you think we have?
Even one line per issue helps, so others know what to look out for.

Also, the problem of lack of documentation is that Renesas/Keystream
thinks that the driver they made is bug-free, and no documentation is
If Hiroki Sugimoto (the head of Keystream engineering) is still around
and Renesas still actively supporting the product (not sure haven't talked
to them in 6 months), then I could go back to Hiroki with a list of
specific issues we ran into.

Maybe I could even give a NanoNote to some of their engineers, actually...
But it all starts with knowing what doesn't work.
