Is this happening with a clean tree, or are there external drivers
involved that trigger the problem?

Because if it's a clean tree, I guess I need to do an rc8 anyway, just
to get whatever workaround you then added to devicetree and/or some
driver to make it work again.

Or is there a quick fix that I can get today or early tomorrow? We had
some confusion this week due to a nasty include header mess, but
despite that there hasn't been anything else that has come up (so
far), so..
