Not really. The specs says that MPS, AMD and CSS need to be set before
enabling, but IOCQES and IOSQES can be modified later as long as there
is no IO queue created yet.

This is necessary otherwise there's a chicken and egg problem. You need
the admin queue to do the controller id in order to get the sizes and
for that you need the controller to be enabled.

Note: This is not a huge issue anyway since I only update the register
if the required size isn't 6 which is probably never going to be the
case on non-Apple HW.

I think it's still ok, let me know...

Ben.
