Hey it seems I completely missed that one, I also did not answer
to your message.

Would you be able to commit it yourself ? I already gave myself
a lot of work lately :)

Can you tell first in what way it is different? I would like to
prevent a wildgrowth of HD44780 subdrivers. We already have
quite a lot of them.

Before we add a new subdriver only because a init timing is
different, I would like to know what exactly is different about
the init and why this init does work and the other one not. Then
we can probably find a general solution so that we don't need
two methods for the same thing.
