I'm going to drop the io_pg_offst patches for a couple of days.  If
this new board support can be sorted out to come into my tree in the
next 24 hours, then I'm sure we can get this fixed properly.

I don't think I can afford to hold the io_pg_offst patches for more
than 48 hours though, so Wednesday evening they'll be merged whatever.
