Yes, something like this but it may be not sufficient. Other
configuration register may also require tuning.

This tuning happens when platform data is provided. The driver overrides
sets whole configuration (the config register and even some more
settings). Since on ARM we moved to DT-only this functionality is
crippled for us but works for Intel.
