Thanks for the review. The general approach for Pi drivers has been to make them
tristate to allow minimal kernels to be built - important when the smallest
Pis have 256M - and the delayed startup isn't a problem because the firmware
is running a thermal limiter from before the kernel is loaded. However, this
driver is very small, and I wouldn't object if somebody decided it was better
to make it built-in.
