I tend to agree. I think it also broke the Samsung ypr0/yrp1 targets
(though the fix for those might be trivial). But the commit message
doesn't read like it would give anything essential/substantial enough to
warrant breaking a whole class of targets.

That said, my guess is that the root cause for the rk27xx is probably
somewhere in the interaction with the hardware dependent code. It would
be nice if that was found and the filesystem commit could stay (or be
re-applied) because it does bring some benefits.

But yea, revert if it breaks a lot of targets that otherwise have no
working build.

Best regards.
