Okay, we can also do it this way. But then please pass the drvdata via
the bind() call and not via set_ops(). Set_ops() should then really only
pass the call-backs, as the name implies.

Yes, this should be required. I think it also makes driver
implementation easier because it doesn't need to care too much about
this special case.
