The persistent_config option is used to make the CEC settings persistent by using the eeprom inside the device to store this information. This was on by default, which caused confusion since this device now behaves differently from other CEC devices which all come up unconfigured.
Another reason for doing this now is that I hope a more standard way of selecting persistent configuration will be created in the future. And for that to work all CEC drivers should behave the same and come up unconfigured by default. None of the open source CEC applications are using this CEC framework at the moment so change this behavior before it is too late.
