Yes, this is how is made on this patch indeed.

Ok, this can be tracked in the driver, will add it when posting v2 soon.

Agreed. Even though this is a fix for a long standing issue I prefer it to be
tested extensively than applying the patch in a rush just to learn that causes
regressions and have to be reverted as it happens last time.

So as you said let's wait until we have a few Tested-by tags by people using
different OMAP platforms specially OMAP1.

Thanks a lot and best regards,
