This is isolated to one particular device, so risk of regression to 
other devices is limited.  Apparently upstream will be working on a 
different solution, but this may be a larger back-porting exercise for 
later and perhaps maybe too big a change for it to be SRU'd.

This is not upstream; would be useful to reference the origin / 
provenance of these patches.
