I'm not pushing back here, just trying to make sure I understand and do
it better next time :)

I don't see that my patch has touched that part of the driver as that
call was already in the driver before my patch (but maybe I'm just
missing it).

My patch did change the dependency in the Kconfig so that it only
depends on powerpc rather than powerpc DCR and maybe that exposed
something that wasn't previously exposed.

Maybe this is an issue in linux-next and I need to test against that,
I'm pulling it now. I was testing against Linus's tree.

Thanks, will spin it again and get that fixed. My apologies for the
hassles, appreciate the help.
