I'll apply this if you like, but I'd prefer a merge request on GitLab so
you get properly credited in the commit history.  You deserve it for this.

And *thanks*!   This would have been impossible to notice without a live
DCF77 and extremely difficult for me to debug even if I knew it was there.
I'll add DCF77 to the list on the website of drivers tested and known good.

You have also lifted a burden from my mind by confirming that the
generic-driver framework itself is not broken.  The changes I had to make to
it during the big cleanup were devilishly tricky and have been at or
near the top of by worry list about where I was most likely to have
busted something.
