Jisheng,

great to finally have someone in the discussion who actually "knows" and
is not just "guessing" as I am ;)

Ok, we can get rid of the numbers.

Ok.

TBH, I haven't really looked into l2cc, yet. I will assemble some people
and move this discussion over to the corresponding patch later this day.

I am fine with berlin2 instead of mv88de3100 where possible. But I
think it would be good to have berlin2 <> Armada 1500 somewhere,
possibly in all user visible places. Armada 1500 is the marketing
name you have chosen, and that is what people will look for.

Feel free to also directly comment on all the other patches, I am
in no hurry to mainline this patch set. The more we can work out
now, the better. But please keep it close to this patch set feature-
wise, I prefer to get it first and add more features later.

Sebastian
