I have received exactly zero reports of 2.2 problems, and as the 2.2 maintainer
I would have expected more (I delete 2.2 + ide-patch reports). My suspicion is
the problem requires UDMA to occur, or to occur with any probability.
The real concern (as with all of these things) is going to be what the
workaround does to performance - as measured in frames/second for most folks ;)
