Sorry, I'm not too hot about this.

Imagine being one of the people who has one of these cards.

Pulling out detection and working'ness of devices from a driver
is a big step backwards, and I'm sorry I will don't want to be
part of something that facilitates this.

The S390 folks tried something similar in the past and I reject
those changes too.
