Hi Samuel,

If the RAM patch wasn't applied successfully the device can't be used
so the setup function should fail.
If the production data (specifically the clock frequency) is not set
the device can not be used. If the user space tries to start polling
before the notification is sent the polling will fail. Having it
called later would mean introducing a race condition.

Cheers,
Robert
