Keep the patches dumb for us mortals please.
If you only change FID 1's state, I am concerned that the driver no
longer initializes FID 0's port state, and might leave that to the
default set by other pre-kernel initialization stage (bootloader?).
So even if you might assume that standalone ports are FORWARDING, they
might not be.
