Usage Notes :
-Prior to call ccw_device_start() the device driver must assure disabled state,

-by calling local_save_flags( flags). The current PSW flags are preserved and
-can be restored by local_irq_restore( flags) at a later time.
-If the device driver violates this rule while running in a uni-processor
