I'm having a bit of a hard time understanding the relevance of your
description, since we're talking about b43. Are you suggesting that b43
should do something similar? But even then I don't see any of the
reinitialization done by brcmsmac setting BCMA_CC_CHIPCTL with the
needed value. Am I missing something?
