Yes, agree we need to root cause this.. I only mentioned audio is
audible clearly to point out that NE10 fft is not completely messed
up, but does have some corner cases where it is failing. ARM folks are
actively looking into this issue, and expecting some resolution next

Also, this NE10 fixed fft issue only impacts patches
armv7,armv8: Optimize fixed point fft using NE10 library
armv7,armv8: Extend fixed fft NE10 optimizations to mdct

In the mean time, do you want me (as you suggested) disable NE10 fixed
fft for mdct_forward? That way when it gets fixed in NE10, it will
just be a one line change patch that will follow.

Either way, request that we make progress on review/merge rest of the patches.
