I meant the kernel you are running on it, not the hardware.
You should always be able to run both a big-endian kernel and
a littl-endian kernel on any ARMv7 machine, and a couple of
platforms use 64-bit physical addresses even on 32-bit machines
(with the normal 32-bit instruction set).

I wasn't completely sure if there are already keystone-derived
products with 64-bit CPU cores, but I guess the driver would
fail really badly on those (with or without the patch).

Ok.


I tried to create a smaller version and stumbled over
a typo, maybe that's the whole problem. Can you try this one:
