From what I've seen of the Linux stance on this, their attitude (which
I don't necessarily disagree with) was: You make your device driver or
hardware stable, and we'll deal with keeping our kernel working with it.
The one thing I dislike, compared to the BSD notion, is stuffing
everything into the kernel.
[tim at bigblack ~]$ uname -ipr
188.8.131.52-65.fc7 i686 i386
Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5. Today, it's FC7.
