[Compile-]Tested-by: Guenter Roeck <linux@...ck-us.net>

on top of linux-next after reverting the version of the patch there.

I also tried to run the resulting image (defconfig) with qemu (built
from https://github.com/riscv/riscv-qemu.git), but that still doesn't
work. I assume there are still some patches missing ?

Thanks,
Guenter
