Do you mean to say that there are OMAP4 variants that don't have the
ABE or that some people choose not to do so for some reason, and unless
the ABE might not be there shouldn't the driver just support both ABE
and non-ABE paths anyway?  That's what the out of tree systems I've seen
have done, though the main use of the non-ABE paths has always been
confirming that issues are in the ABE.
