Either way works but it's easy to keep it all in one series in one tree.

The urgency is that the current powerpc quirk works only with one specific
card (ie, one device ID for gfx and one for audio) and misses the DMA limitation
of the sound driver (which is a somewhat orthogonal issue but the patch for it is
in the series).

Any other radeon card causes the machine to crash at boot (the driver doesn't
recover well from the EEH error triggered by the bad MSI address and the world
falls over from there).

So I want this to go back into distros.
