It was sent on the 1st, and seems to have come from this thread:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/1546318276-18993-3-git-send-email-yong.wu@mediatek.com/

I'll gladly revert it if you do not think it is correct.

is being ignored, that doesn't seem right, and might be a driver bug...

Let me look at it again in the morning...
