With all the junk still from kernels as ancient as 1.2.x? Ugh. That
driver is the single largest C file in the kernel, weighing in at 687k.
If they feel they need to maintain the drivers for kernels that old then
the source is still available in the old kernel's tarball. There comes
a point when we can't continue to carry this cruft forward anymore.
