As of right now the dspbridge doesn't work, and there's a mess of
dependencies to get it working.

 - omap iommu: linux-omap pull request has already been sent, and
   there's no target when the omap iommu pull request will be sent...
   right Hiroshi?
 - linux-arm: some patches are needed, and it's not clear if they'll
   make it to .37-rc1, or .37 at all.

So, no, I don't think these patches should considered as of right now.

In fact, these affect mostly iommu, and I think until those other
dependencies are resolved, we should revert back to a previous point
where the driver was actually working.

What is guideline in staging when a driver is broken like this?
