Nikolaus,

I tested Tony's change and I can confirm that I can read the value
when enabled.  Should I apply his patches to your branch before I
test, or is it go too to go as-is? I've got an AM3517, OMAP35 and a
DM3730.  I am not sure if the AM3517 is even on the radar, but it has
an sgx530 as well.
