This is good, I'll rework the last sentence slightly and update the
message.

I wrote 48 first, then checked the driver and concluded that it's 40,
but you're right it's 48 in this case. It seems like there's some
configurability here and some hard restrictions, but from what I can see
48 is a sensible choice.

I'll update it.

So the DT spec is where I find the definition. That makes more sense,
thanks.

I was looking for pending patches, but missed that one. Will pick it up
as well, and take another look for others.

Well, either I apply them and then update this patch or I apply this and
then update the patches as I apply them. But I'll take another tour of
the mailing list.

Thanks for verifying this.
