I'd rather duplicate simple, known-working code than go around looking
whether some other part of the boards software system has set enable
bits. (Think of a linux bootloader akin to the simplicity of a QNX IPL
which doesn't enable anything but the debug port, if at all)

In short, consider these patches withdrawn.
