Ok, I did some reading and just started a git bisect. I didn't find hints on
how to bisect if I'm only interested in changes to sky2.[ch], so I'm taking
the full kernel tree and skip testing those bisect steps that didn't change

Looking at Carl-Danies 0.13a and Stephens patch against 0.15 in this thread,
I'll patch each bisect step such that sky2_poll() has

       sky2_write32(hw, STAT_CTRL, SC_STAT_CLR_IRQ);
       if (sky2_read8(hw, STAT_LEV_TIMER_CTRL) == TIM_START) {
               sky2_write8(hw, STAT_LEV_TIMER_CTRL, TIM_STOP);
               sky2_write8(hw, STAT_LEV_TIMER_CTRL, TIM_START);

after exit_loop. Is that ok?

I'll report as soon as I have results.
