I don't think you wanted that left in.

I think some of these includes can be removed. There is no regular, or
gpio code in this file, etc.

You should have a timeout/retry limit here, just in case.

Module parameters are bad. A new driver should not have one, if
possible. Please implement the ethtool .get_msglevel and .set_msglevel
instead.
