The driver as-is loads fine on newer board but spams the log with
failure messages (fixed by the first patch).
The patch that might cause problem is the second one (I've kept the
patch separated and bisectable for this reason); however without that
patch users with new boards won't get updated readings.
So I'd say that it's desirable to have both of them in 2.6.32.
