As long as this is transparent to user space, it could work. Remember
that user space simply copies the correction field from the Request
into the Response. If the driver correctly accumulates the turnaround
time into the correction field of the response, then all is well.

Good question. Normally you would expect just one Request pending at
any one time, but nothing guarantees that, and so the driver would
have to match the Req/Resp exactly and deal with rogue/buggy requests
and responses.
