It's not supported yet, but I have a patch to do that, which I used for
testing this code. I try to have the platform code ready before submitting
the main patch.

Yes, good point, it should probably be part of the main patch then.

Right. I'll drop this patch from the submission then. You came just in
time, as I had originally planned to send it out this morning.

I'll also follow up with a separate patch to address the isb() issue.
