Okay, that means there is some work to be done to figure out how to
support this correctly so that both the iMX and Rockchip code can
co-exist together in the mainline kernel - that means we _both_ need
to work together on this problem _before_ this code gets merged, so
that we have a common approach between the two code bases.

I really don't want to end up in another cocked up situation like
what happened with the Dove audio, where it became politically
impossible for the SolidRun platform to be properly supported by
mainline kernels.

FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: currently at 9.5Mbps down 400kbps up
according to speedtest.net.
