I'm really of no opinion of which approach is better here, but I will
say that when a patch breaks previously working boards, that's a
regression and justifying that some other board is now enabled that
would be broken by the revert (of a patch that is not yet upstream)
isn't really a strong argument.

I'm happy to work with folks to try to fixup the kirin driver if this
patch really is the right approach, but we need someone to do the same
for the db410c, and I don't think its fair to just dump that work onto
folks under the threat of the board breaking.

thanks
