I'll likely poke around a bit more, but I can probably live with something
along these lines. My objection to exposing stuff like the HCC, ISOC, and
ARBC registers is that my gut feel is that it would be a pain to handle
them getting changed arbitrarily from userspace inside the driver,
especially if someone does the work to make it RSS capable.

PS: Are you still interested in changes to handle the ZT5550C versus
ZT5550D issues, or are things working to your satisfaction at the
moment?
