I'd say you'd generally want this to be a per-instance setting, which
could be a sysfs attribute of the physical device, or an ioctl for an
existing user space abstraction.

In the changelog, you should also explain what this is used for. Do
you actually want to write to a device that is marked read-only, or
are you just trying to make the interface more consistent between the
two drivers?
