It is the second case - I've amended the comment in v3, the issue is
that the driver will fail to initialise if there is no SFP present at
boot (not very hotplug-friendly!).
The issue with calling it one layer above is that this function is
saved in a table, and there are at least 3-4 places where it is called
from. So it would have to be repeated many times, and also I'm not 100%
sure of all the places where to do this, as the function table is
updated several times across the base driver.

So, when you say caller or caller's caller, do you have identified
precisely where? I'm happy to change it if you can point me exactly to
the right places.

Thanks!
