Not personally tried it, but it should work.

+1, I've tested it but haven't added the "results" to my webpages yet - I'll post a link in this thread when that's done.

Still running Raspbian Jessie or Stretch on some older Pi's (an A, B1, B2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W, 2xP3A+, P3B+, P3B, B+, A+ and a B2) but Buster on the P4B's. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm

No one ever came back to me on https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/2668 with what was actually working, therefore no changes.
