This hardware / OS connection problem is getting really annoying for
everyone and this pattern is repeating itself since several years. It is
time we fix it properly.

The first solution looks hackish from my POV. The second approach looks
nicer and generic as you say. So I would vote for [2] but with the
flagging approach proposed by Mark [3].

I added Arnd in Cc in order to have its opinion.
