To be clear it can also return a positive value and then finalize later,
there's no need to finalize before returning (otherwise finalizing would
be a bit redundant) and if the driver doesn't return a positive value
there should be no need to finalize at all.

The core shouldn't be waiting at all if the driver returned an error, we
only wait if the return value was positive. Looking at the code it's
not clear to me how we manage to end up waiting - it looks like the
driver passes back the error correctly and the core looks like it does
the right thing. Have you seen hangs in operation?
