This is really concerning since it's jumping straight to open coding the
algorithm in platform specific code which isn't great, especially since
that platform specific code is now going to have to handle all possible
board specific restrictions that might be found on that platform. Why
is it not possible to express the rules that exist in a more general
fashion which can be encoded in drivers? I'm not thrilled about later
patches that export core functionality for platform specific use either.
