In that case, are you sure you want to ack it?  Right now there are very few
boards that have mainboard init functions ( < 20).  I think now is the time
to migrate away from it if it's a bad idea.

I don't think it would take very long to help Jens change the code so that
the initialization that was done by the mainboard code gets done in the
cs5536 code where it belongs.
