This is my fault, sorry. I updated the server but missed out on rebuilding
the drivers. And with one thing leading to another, Easter came, I forgot
about it and the above bug didn't show up on my radar until ajax pinged me
this morning.

I'm about to rebuild and update the drivers, but my upstream link is
currently using pigeons, so it will take me a while.

The resources have been put in, there are ABI checks in the RPMs but as ajax
said, they don't work until the ABI is bumped upstream.
