As it stands the Logic PD OMAP35 and AM37/DM37 boards (SOM-LV and
Torpedo) require this to be hard coded to 4 or it hangs during start.
This is the case for all versions 4.2+. I haven't tested it with
older stuff. Tony has a DM3730 Torpedo kit and reported the hanging
issue to me. I told him to set that value to 4 to make it not hang.
He asked that I move it to the DT to avoid custom kernels. I agree
it's a hack, but if it's create a customized defconfig file for 4
boards or modify the device tree, it seems like the device tree
approach is less intrusive.
