The documentation is totally useless - I've been through it several times
and it just doesn't give the necessary information to work out what the
routing actually is. The only place that's documented is in the circuits,
which are impossible to get hold of (even asking ARM for them doesn't get
anywhere: basically, all information has been destroyed.)

If someone is willing to send me some definitive information, then
the kernel will get fixed. All the time that there is no definitive
information, there is no point what so ever changing the kernel.

In other words, if you have the circuit diagrams or other documentation
which definitively identifies the wiring, then please send it to me.
