Yeah so it seems.

Oh there's a gap here and it goes all the way to 2400.. Is there
a gap on am335x too?

OK that's great, thanks for the data!

OK that's good to hear.

Hmm well we could that in the kernel using the SRAM code as long as
it does not reset the devices.

OK the driver would have to be enabled with interrupts while scanning.

Thanks for all the info :)
