There is certainly a way to automate this, but my question on whether
that sequence would fix the problem was intended to more easily fix a
real bug in the driver.

I can try to help fix the driver on my free time as a volunteer.
Christian, would you be willing to test patches to the driver? That
would require some back and forth between us and some patience of yours,
as I would be doing it on my spare time, considering I have family and
other projects I would like to attend to as well.

I don't have a PPC Macbook of my own, but I used to fix Linux drivers on
PPC64 for a living not too long ago.
