We can tell if we've got a software controlled GPIO connected, if we
have then we should ensure that it continues to take effect. That
should just be a single register write at startup from the sounds of it.
Otherwise yeah, just ignoring that there's a possibility of a GPIO we
don't know about seems sensible.
