Stefan, Kleber, Marcelo,
Yeah - Jayachandran is the original author.
This is a workaround for a bug in early silicon that is not for
production use. That bug will be fixed in a silicon rev, and existing
boards replaced, so they do not plan to upstream the fix. However,
this early silicon is being evaluated with the artful kernel, so it'll
help users if we can carry it for a cycle.
(This is a fix for a fix we're already carrying, with the above caveat).
