If this is what you would both be okay with then I'll do it this way,
pushing v4 in a moment.

I believe some other current reset drivers could have made use of this
without having resorted to new drivers, I guess we will have to just
wait to see if it gets traction with new platforms or not, before we can
decide if this solution is really as general as I think it can be.
