No, this will not work.. next time you open the device you won't have
IRQ anymore. You need the opposite of outb_p(DEVICE_ENABLE,

It is actually working; it also works after suspend/resume without any

I currently do not know a safe way of disabling the device, as HTC did
not offer any specifications or datasheet when I requested, so everything
in the driver has been reverse engineered.

Let me know if you think it's ok to leave it as is, otherwise I'll try
to find the proper way to disable the device (it should not be much
different than the way of enabling it).
