Yea. I agree that your patch is preferred.

Is it likely that the special case situation is common? It seems
having the driver do the special casing in its code (even better, with
an explanation for why that driver needs it) will be better then
having multiple similar hooks that don't have clear explanations that
drivers are likely to mix up.
