Thankfully not for EV-64260 or any other almost-non-embedded 6xx/7xx/74xx
systems, only for 4xx/8xx/82xx stuff that's completely off my radar screen for
now and probably for the foreseeable future.

It is wrong. Every platform in 2_4_devel my hacky hands have touched uses
bi_recs exclusively. bi_recs work very well for me as they are right now.

For me it has been ironed out perfectly a long time ago, which is why I haven't
participated much in that "discussion".
