Hi Thierry,

Thanks for this serie. I'll test it in the next days. It looks good to me, at
least the 5 patches I had a look into, so if it works on the 5 boards I have,
I'll queue it up in pxa/for-next.



PS: removed all the addresses at openezx.org, don't see to work, or at least
make my MTA very angry.
