I believe we put this code in staging/ not because there were issues
with the codebase itself. But rather because the subsystem needs
more industry interest and developer sign-offs. The TODO reflects that.

And that will be very hard to do without some form of a config interface,
which this patchset adds.

Perhaps the time isn't ripe for this subsystem yet, although I cannot
believe that we are the only ones running Linux on fieldbus 'gadgets'.
