hum, sorry, I think that my previous answer was not completely right,
and did not really answer to Dong Jia comment, yes fsm_irq was not
at its place, thinking again about the comments of both of you
I think that we can suppress the INIT event.

I would like to rebase the patch to include the comments you both did.
