Do you expect these pins to ever be changed after probe? If not, then
perhaps it can be moved to attach(), but otherwise I guess they should
be set at port_probe(). By using shadow registers, you should be able to
reduce the number of device accesses, but perhaps it's not worth the
complexity.

Do you have a rough idea about how long these register updates take? I
was just worried that these changes will add up to really long probe
times.

Thanks,
Johan
