Having read the description in that bug it does seem that these devices
can be connected to PCI (discoverable) and some MACIO platform driver
(non-discoverable).  Pretty much the only way to support those MACIO
connected versions is to build this driver in; vile though that is.

I have pushed a further update to precise switching this to =y.
