I thought it was only "wrong" to disable this on multi-function devices,
which is why some drivers didn't do it.  Otherwise, how would it be any
different to have the global setting?

Anyway, I really don't care either way, but this seems like something
that the drivers should be doing.  What suddenly changed that caused
this problem to occur that hasn't happened in the years prior to now
that drives this to be a stable-kernel issue?
