Yes, Red Hat has our QDF2400 systems. You need one with 1.x silicon.
Contact anyone you know in the ARM server group. Email me offline if
you can't find anyone.

I don't know if Red Hat has any XGene systems.

It was forced 't' for ARM64. That is, if ACPI is enabled, SPCR is
always enabled and always used. With your patch, we would need to test
our kernel with console=ttyAMA0,0xfeblabla,etc to make sure that it
still works.

'default y' means that some can turn SPCR off, but keep ACPI still on.
