OK, sure.

Yes.

The overall problem was that we were checking a different bit than we
were setting. We set "enabled" to turn things on and then we check
"power good".

I can avoid the open coding by doing something that's slightly a hack.
I'll put that in V2 and you can tell me if you like it better. I'll
set "enable_mask" and "enable_val" to include both bits. The "power
good" is read only so it won't hurt to set it. ...and it doesn't hurt
to check the enabled bit in addition to the power good bit.

typo. fixed.

It's not quite a "do { } while" since the break is in the middle, but
happy to change to a "while (true)". Hope that's OK.

LOL. I've been yelled at for the opposite. ;) There's at least
someone out there who thinks that we should have braces if you've got
a single statement like this that wraps to two lines, but I can't
remember who.

In any case, fixed.
