Thanks a lot!

That's true, but testing the most recent Linux kernel on the AmigaOne is
never wrong. :-)

That would be cleaner, but I guess it would break CHRP and PSERIES.
These platforms probably only provide a pnpPNP,100 entry in the device
tree (at least that's the case on the Pegasos2 CHRP machine AFAICT).
