Grmbl. Yeah, because the driver wasn't in the tree by the time the
defconfig was generated. So technically it wasn't in arm-soc by the
time we picked up the patch either.

Let's sort this out early next week when we're in Dublin. By then
davem's main pull request might be in-tree and that'll make it easier.
