Awesome, thanks for your support :)

Hm I hope this happens soon. Manavanninan is doing a great
job in switching this over, I just have to accept that the pace
isn't always what it should be in all upstream projects, and
deal with an imperfect world.

How to handle anything routed to/from programmable logic is
in a bit of mess right now, I understand this work isn't the
easiest :/

Let's go for this patch and try to improve the situation gradually
moving forward.
