Actually, there's already a driver 'flags' flag which forces the
driver to not download the firmware.  From isp_reset():

        if ((isp->isp_fwrev >= isp->isp_mdvec->dv_fwrev) ||
            (cf_flags & 0x80) != 0) {
                dodnld = 0;

My suggestion was (or was intended to be): "leave that flag's
behaviour alone."  8-)
