This looks like a respin of a fix which was originally submitted back in
2.6.29 era or so.  IIRC there's been two or three versions, each of
which needed fixes.

I appreciate that Brian leaving won't have helped here but this was an
issue before then, it feels like there's some sort of general process
issue going on.  I'm not sure what it is - IIRC there tends to be about
one set of Blackfin patches per kernel release.

It's not specifically causing me problems, it's more of a concern from
the point of view of getting stuff to users.
