  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 i686 i386

Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5.  Today, it's FC7.
