you really don't want that button working pre stage2, because, if the
button is hardwired on, the machine turns off in 4 seconds :-)

So you don't want to "default enable" it. You want to "don't do
ANYTHING until you are sure". right now code is default enable, and I
had to comment that out to get dbe62 up.

I don't think the 5536 is visible until you do this, i.e. is not
addressable? Is that what you meant Marc?

I am going to take this slowly. I am going to move power button to
stage 2, and make it a standard part of cs5536 bringup in stage 2. No
harm is done by delaying the enable of the power button, and I already
know lots of harm is done by enabling the power button too early.
Patch later tonight.
