Thank you very much.

I believe the testing I did is still valid.

Feel free to include any parts of the description of the test I made
back then into your patch description as you see it as relevant for it.

Also feel free to include my Tested-By: (probably with a hint the test
was in 2012).

I am not sure I am ready to permanently let go of (some of) the hardware
I still have collected, but at some time I may. I do have SATA-SCSI
bridges. That A4000T I have here probably could be a nice Debian m68k
build host.
