Can you specify what platform this is and where the code is that does
this. I can't really find any device tree users of this and I don't know
if there's a good way to find out what other users there are, but this
isn't the first time this driver has created confusion, so please help
collect some more information about it's use so we can avoid this in the
future.

I'll back out this particular patch since you're using it. Can you give
the other three patches a try to see if they work for you?
