No, that's wrong. The whole point is to be able to *override* the
default that is exposed by the device tree or ACPI. We have countless
examples of that, and they cannot be broken.

If the issue exists after an unload, then it is a unload time that the
previous behaviour should be restored.



Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.
