Ah, got it!  I'd be OK with it being hardcoded in the driver.

At one point I think David was making the argument that some boards
have different noise needs for the rails and thus you might want to
change modes at different currents.  I don't know if this is realistic
but I believe it was part of his original argument for why this needed
to be specified.  If we can hardcode this in the driver I'm fine with
it...  That would actually solve many of my objections too...
