At some time in the future yes. I've recently done some improvements to
the staging atomisp driver so that it will run in a pm-only mode when
the firmware is missing so that the ISP still gets turned off properly
in this case and the driver now supports both BYT + CHT in a single
build so in a way it is ready to replace the atomisp2 pm driver.

But it is still in staging, so distros are unlikely to enable it
and without a atomisp2-pm driver the battery drains much to quickly
especially when suspended.

So I think we are getting there, but now is not the right moment
to drop this driver.

Yes I have a bit of a backlog, I have just processed them,
thank you for those patches.
