Reverting the SPEAr13xx would definitely help, yes. The reason why I'd also like
to see the second patch get merged is so that we can do the SPEAr changes in 3.10
without having an interdependency between the trees. I tried very hard to
make the patch have a minimal impact on the non-DT code path to avoid regressions.

Maybe you can send your tree now with just the revert applied, and then send the
other one separately next week along with any bug fixes that may have accumulated
by then?
