Vladimir, to be clear, you can continue with waiting for the patches
to get into 3.9 but that will take a while but given that you want
your driver in 3.8 you can fold those routines into your driver as
you had before but with a rename by adding a prefix and sumbit that
driver and specify it is for 3.8.
