I really don't understand what is going on here; there seems to be a
total disconnect of communication between yourself and Ard. Ard has
already submitted a different patch for this to the patch system
already, sent yesterday.

https://www.armlinux.org.uk/developer/patches/viewpatch.php?id=9021/1

Please discuss between yourselves how you want to solve the problem,
and then submit an agreed and tested patch to those of us upstream;
please don't make it for those upstream to pick one of your patches
as you are at present.

Thanks.
