This is most likely just an oversight.  I started going over the dde
code.  Zheng Da got lot's of little details wrong.  This is not meant
to sound harsh, I'm full of respect that he got dde-based drivers
up and running during a gsoc.

Now let's team up and clean up his work so that we can merge it
upstream and have a good template for more dde-based drivers :)
