When comparing registers descriptions between A13 and A64, I noticed few minor
differences:

A13: RXINT: 11:6 RAL
A64: RXINT: 13:8 RAL

A13: IR_RXSTA: 12:6 RAC
A64: IR_RXSTA: 14:8 RAC, 7 STAT (missing on A13)

What is strange that RAL and RAC field have offset defined as 8 in driver. I'm
not sure if that is a typo in A13 manual or driver issue. I assume the former,
otherwise it wouldn't work. I couldn't found original BSP driver source to
confirm, though.

STAT bit is really not that important. It just tells if IR unit is busy or
not.

The biggest difference is in 0x34 register. A64 has one more clock option
(without postdivider), although register values are backward compatible. A64
also has Active threshold setting (duration of CIR going from idle to active
state).

If we dismiss RAC and RAL differences as manual error and don't care for new
clock option and active threshold, then having new compatible maybe really
doesn't make sense.

Best regards,
Jernej
