What SoC? As i keep saying, the FEC is used in a lot of different
SoCs, and you need to show this does not cause any regressions in the
older SoCs. There are probably a lot more imx5 and imx6 devices out in
the wild than imx8, which is what i guess you are testing on. Mainline
needs to work well on them all, even if NXP no longer cares about the
older Socs.
