But you need to remember you need to enable dbglog first to get these
events. I guess when coverage class is set the driver could,
internally, override dbglog mask so that these events are guaranteed
to be reported for the purpose of properly refreshing registers on
channel programming.

At that point I guess the update hook could be just placed in dbglog
handler alone instead of all over wmi_rx variants.
