Yeah, please don't accept this patch. It deserves an "RFC" in the title
at best. Sure, it's an identified race condition, but the cure here
(deleting all possible recovery from firmware crashes) is worse than the
disease.

There's no real attempt at analyzing the race or providing solutions, so
there's not much to discuss yet.
