The patch you attached is similar in spirit to what I suggested, but 
with way more warnings sprinkled around. I don't really mind either way, 
and if you prefer big warnings so be it; it's your driver after all :-)

Again, all of them are your calls. Fix the issue as you see fit; as long 
as it's a technically sound I'm ok with it. But please don't reinvent 
the wheel on framework code under a principle that has no proven reason 
to be to cover up for a buggy driver.

Cheers, and have a great Wednesday :)


PS: I'd really appreciate it if you could keep me cc'ed on respins of 
patches I comment on in the future.
