It shouldn't matter whether the device suppurts sync or not; the driver
should detect this and continue using async on that device.
I have done a great deal of cleanup in the sync negotiation area. I
managed to get my Q40s which with the old driver nogotiated 50% of the
time and refused to be probed the other 50% to always probe on the new
driver. I simply don't have any devices that lock the bus on sync
negotiation to play with.
