In our design, the IT8783F's Pin 91 is defined as VIN7, and likewise bit2 of index 0x2C is 1.
As I'm not yet used to git: which would be the easiest way to get the it87 with all patches integrated for kernel 2.6.32 for testing purposes? On your github site, I didn't find the appropriate entry for the patches you sent...
