OK, that's possibly sounding a bit complicated.  Is it just a case of
writing some value, doing a reconfiguration and rewriting the original
value or is it something more?  If it's much more complicated than that
then I think putting a comment in the driver explaining what the issue
is would be the right step, that would address the issue with the driver
looking strange.
