thanks for this submission. Looks like an interesting device. However,
some very high level questions first:

Yes, I see that. Yet, I don't know why they are needed? The driver
should know when to send NAK/STOP. Why expose that to the user? And why
do we need a reset? Are there stability problems? What about unloading
the module? And what is the use case for reading the status?

Ouch! Don't you have any repeated start option somewhere?
