jup i am aware of that. i have a fix for the "misdetection", but it was
on purpose that i let you try the 0x92 patch without that fix.
thanks a lot for your testing! your board will be supported in one way
or another by the next release.

so. the patch from jonathan works for this board too (besides the
EP-8NPA7I and a bunch of others according to him).
the question now is if we want to enable it for all ck804 boards by
default (i.e. ack the patch as is), or if we wanna put it in a board
i think it is ok to apply it as is, even if we are not 100% sure it is
safe everywhere.
please speak out now if you differ before i ack it.

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
