    No. You should initialise the hardware completely when the driver is
    reloaded. Although the expected case is that the levels just happen to be
    the same as the last time the module was loaded, you can't know that the
    machine hasn't been suspended and resumed since then.

    Don't troll, James. Reread the thread and see why doing it in userspace is
    too late.
