Either that, or, if one implements it, then one should probably do it in a
watchdog type way (i.e. expect new userspace input at least every 20 seconds,
otherwise emergency-switch back to kernel mode or maybe better even BIOS mode).
One molten machine less, ya know ;)

(would be good to add this as a comment in the driver patch, "if one intends
to add userspace control, then please watchdog...")
