That is exactly what I did in my proposed patch, attached earlier.

I noticed the same problem.

Does anyone out there know how you can tell if the RageXL chip has
already been initialized?

One test I have that works on my hardware is to test the STAT0
register. If it ends with 0x95, the chip has not been initialized,
otherwise I initialize it.
