Let's hope so. Our E44 erratum work-around has caused lots of
problems in the past, so the code is a bit fragile.

Please give us a chance to test this patch before merging. We've had a
lot of problems with our E44 work-around, and we need to make sure
that qdf2400_erratum_44_present function is called before the pl011
driver is probed.

I suspect that this function has the same issues as
qdf2400_erratum_44_present().

So ACPI without SPCR has never been tested by us. Making it optional
makes me a little nervous. We'll have to evaluate this change.
