Please do also use subject lines matching the style for the subsystem.

OK, so the question now is why is this being done using a callback and
why is that callback picking from a list of predefined configurations?
You've not motivated this decision at all and it's not obvious to me
that it's the best approach (for example, why not just let the machine
driver set the parameters at any time rather than have it wait for a

The picking from a list is especially odd, what I said in my previous
review was:

but if the selection is done purely in kernel space and we're not
constructing an enum then it's less clear that this is helpful.
