I already did, or at least tried to, on Thursday [1].

Well, clearly not if it was broken in v4.10 & only just fixed..? And
from Marek's commit message the patch in v4.10 doesn't break the whole
system just RS485.

I completely agree that would be ideal and I wrote a patch hoping to do
that on Thursday, but didn't get any response on testing. It's late in
the cycle hence a revert made sense. Simple as that.

Thanks,
Paul
