Why do you need the plaform ID, and if it is needed could we work out a
way to make the generic code do that lookup for you (since presumably
other drivers will have the same requirement)?  If you can't use the
generic code it seems like the fix is to enhance the generic code and
I'd expect that something not requiring the platform ID would just be
able to igore that information if the generic code could look it up.
