Hmm, so this was never fully implemented then :-(

We'd have plenty of spare GPIOs for sure.

Anyway, without a v4 spin of the board, just putting some resistor
on R71 is the best we can do.

Just in case we decide to do a v4 spin, now or later, do you know of
any other unresolved issues ?

By the way, what's that "antenna" on J4 good for ? I vaguely remember
that someone once mentioned that it was used for testing of material
or the production process. So I suppose it doesn't serve any real
purpose anymore ?
