The patch is at the same location as before:
I've made all the changes that I mentioned previously (documenting
calls and what fields the callers are expected to look at, etc.). In
addition I've widened the interface to listen as I know that it only
has start and stop. I've changed _abort to _reset, and I now check the
capenable field instead of flags in connect.
