OK. That's enough for me. I'll add the new PDA starting offset into the
driver. Being in the end of the list, it should not really cause any
issues for other cards and since it seems to work, I see no reason not
to add it. In addition, prism2_srec verifies the CRC16 in the end of the
PDA, so even if the memory area contained something that would parse, it
would be likely to fail the checksum verification.
