It seems that Nicholas's problems had to do with having random copies
of 1.10 in /lib/firmware.
This is about more than "does it fix my problem". The patch I am
submitting could cause potential breakage with other devices, so I
need people who have a stable environment to test the change and make
sure it doesn't cause breakage.
Otherwise, it just gets pushed in, you do an "hg update" and all of a
sudden your environment is broken.
The patch is known to fix several problems required to get the xc5000
working with the dib0700, but I want to be sure people with a working
environment don't start seeing problems.
