As there have been no replies on mailing list on this, I went ahead and
made a simple patch for the above quoted approach. I remember that using
an extra field was found to be the preferred approach by several people
on IRC as well.

Attached you will find that patch, plus an accordingly modified
DBE61/DBE62 board enable patch.

Comments or Acks? :)
