Please dismiss this patch - I forgot to turn 'return' to 'return 0' at
the end of the function, while converting it's type from void to int,
and it causes driver to fail always now. I'll send updated version shortly.

Also I've managed to get another Harmony board today, and it doesn't have
problems with PLL locking (PLL locks on it in about 2ms), so probably the
issue I've seen is caused by some hardware fault on the first board,
or is specific to some particular revision of the board and/or Tegra2 chip.

I'll do more testing tomorrow and re-spin the patches.
Best regards,
Dmitry "MAD" Artamonow
