Anyone interested to take over the maintenance of the driver for the floppy controller in the Linux Kernel?

So yeah, it's 2019, someone fixed bugs in the linux kernel's *floppy driver*, and these are 3/5 of the changes:

"floppy: fix out-of-bounds read in copy_buffer
floppy: fix invalid pointer dereference in drive_name
floppy: fix out-of-bounds read in next_valid_format"

@zalandocalrissian @cstrotm Ah, I suppose that means you’re volunteering to rewrite it in Rust. Nice!
