  You are right, the same happens here!

  From the definitions in the header files (which have been about my
only "documentation" in this respect), the driver seems to do it the
wrong way here.  However, sifting through the comments in the "other"
drivers it seems like there actually may be different wirings on
different hardware!

  Well, since the 5000e seems to be consistent with what the header
files say, I will swap this for the moment.  We might be needing some
more flexible solution if other people report this to be the wrong way
'round for them.
