Upcoming 3.3 Dreamplug kernel.

In 3.3-rc2 the Dreamplug finally gets a machine ID of its own (3550).
This presents an interesting dilemma for the arcnumber that will go into Dreamplugs, e.g. 3550 for 3.3+ and 2559 for 3.2-. Or is it better to patch the DP for 2559?


Attached is the simple Dreamplug patch that I have been using for 3.* kernels, it seems ok on 3.3-rc2. It adds support for SPI flash access and Dreamplug leds. It assumess that MACH_DREAMPLUG is defined (whatever the value might be).
The patch is in http://www.spinifex.com.au/plugs/downloads/dreamplug/kernel/dreamplug-3.2.4.tar.xz

In my opinion it'd be better to transition to the new arc number.  I try not to patch the original kernel when possible.
