I must admit I don't quite get why the patch had to be split. The three
chunks do exactly the same thing for the three boards.

The only difference is that the part touching armada-xp-gp and
armada-xp-openblocks-ax3-4 was also adding some comments for each
range, while the one for armada-xp-db didn't had to do it because the
comments were already there.

So really, the armada-xp-db change is as much of a "fix" than the two
other changes.

To be honest, as long as they all go in 3.11, I'm fine, but I'm just
curious as to why it would have had to be split.
