In the case of the sis driver, the "silicon revision register" is
stored somewhere in BAR0, so I cannot examine it until the resources
are allocated.

I know there are other drivers which could be similarly more detailed
of the description were set in attach rather than probe.

I think postpoining the print to after attach might make sense.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
