I'm aware.  I tried to get them all in before the cutoff but the build 
system thwarted me.

For the record, the following drivers were not updated:

- nv
- nsc
- sisusb

The first two were timing issues getting the build complete, the second 
was due to an upstream packaging screwup (empty tarball?  how'd that 
happen).  Also as mentioned in the report, the new ABI of the evdev 
driver is not built for ia64, due to a spontaneous build failure that I 
didn't have time to track down.

The first three issues, and hopefully the fourth, should be resolved by 
tomorrow's rawhide.
