    I agree.

    There is a similar problem in the Acenic driver, it brings the
    link up and receives broadcast packets as soon as the driver
    is loaded. Mostly this is because the driver inits the chip
    and registers the IRQ handler at probe time, whereas nearly
    every other driver does this at ->open() time.
