Oh, and I've thought the only tricky stuff is mapping the errno's
correctly. I think if we have such cases of racy drivers then the right
thing to do is to shovel this macro into drivers and slap a big comment
about signalling races on top of that code.

Thomas report doesn't say so, but I guess it's for via. Thomas, do you
still have a vague recollection of what this has been about?

Dave, do you want me to just respin this one with via left as-is (and the
macro pushed into the via driver)?

Thanks, Daniel
