If there are many which duplicate the above pattern, it'd probably be
worthwhile to provide a helper? It's usually a good idea to reduce
the amount of boilerplate code in drivers.

Ditto.

If we do things this way, it breaks all drivers using this interface
until they're converted, right? Also, it probably isn't the best idea
to flip the behavior like this as this can go completely unnoticed (no
compiler warning or anything, the same function just behaves
differently). Maybe it'd be a better idea to introduce a simpler
interface that most can be converted to?

Thanks.
