Hi Stephen, thanks for the review.

It's a restriction that was in the original driver code, and I'm being
cautious. I don't have much documentation for the device, and I haven't
yet figured a way to test the limit so I can play with removing it. If
you have any suggestions on how to do that, I'd be happy to hear them.

Cheers,

Mark
