That is somewhat hard to predict as Motorola was not interested in helping us
with the driver for mainline and we never got datasheets or technical support.
From what we have researched it seems that they use an antecessor of this chip
in older feature phones. As far as we know none of them runs linux.

So far it seems to be no problem. If there is a strong feeling to change this we
will of course work on that. Personally I would prefer to do this when new users
of this driver appear.

We had this before and it turned out as messy as this solution. We have one
machine file that supports up to 6 devices right now. So we would have to deal
with the same machine_is_xyz macros in the machine file.

We thought it would be better to let the driver handle this. Open for discussion
of course.

Will do.

Ok, I'll need to look up on this to see if it is an option.

Well, matter of taste. :)

Taking care about cleanup is good style. Still you are right that it is useles
for the time being.

Heard of it, but not read the code yet. It's on my list. I just a bit hesitant
to base on code that is not in mainline yet. But -next should be ok.

Duh, will fix.

I send out an updated patch tomorrow. Need some sleep now.

Thanks for the feedback.
