Hi Alessandro,

If run-time distinction between AD and BB is used this makes the change
bigger, more complicated and difficult to understand.

These problems were discussed in a previous posting back in February
https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/2/16/29 

This change is just a supporting option for people who have the older AD silicon
in their hardware.

Regards,
Steve
