Can the driver use is_enabled() in the probe routine to check the
current status during probe and hand off appropriately? The issue here
seems like it's the fact that the driver isn't managing to bootstrapping
of its state well.

Worst case seems to be that the card will be briefly powered during boot
then turned off again after enumeration which doesn't seem like the end
of the world to me.
