That doesn't really help me in my particular case. I tried turning the
param off and that just leads to the roothub.a reg not being modified
at all (and ganged over-current protection being left in place).

So, I guess I'm still back to my original idea of adding a new quirk
(perhaps quirk is not the best name for it in this case) that allows
the per-port over-current to be selected.
If you would rather that this not be a quirk and I rework the code such
that if no other quirks are selected then we configure for per-port
over-current as the default then I can do that too. If you expect per-
port over-current to be the default then explicit code that enforces
that might be best.

What's the best approach?

Thanks,
Hamish M
