I'm not sure what the outcome is, and the patch changelog doesn't
explain what the patch is for, so I've not applied it. If you need the
patch for correct operation, please resend it with a proper changelog

any of the bits.

The last email in that thread mentions
L310_AUX_CTRL_CACHE_REPLACE_RR, is that required after all?
