Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately as I said I have no access to
the hardware, and won't have anymore. I don't think it is a good idea to
send a patch that I cannot test on real hardware, especially since it is
for a generic hardware that thus might affect others. But I would be
glad to review any such patch that might be sent, FWIW.
