It was a while back and I'm guessing we are down to the last few 'hard'
drivers like this one. Hence probably worth a repost.

The very rough argument is that attaching the pollfunc is really not a driver
specific thing so should be in the core. It naturally fits at the point just
before postenable as it's the real enable (previously we were just
using the flag setting as the point of enablement).

So hopefully simplifies the model somewhat.

I asked Alex to do the precursor to the reorg separately as there was simply
too much to discuss in the original patch as it made functional changes
(such as this one!)

Definitely worth a back reference in the patch descriptions though so
the history is there.
