I'm hoping that Rusty will work with Keith to integrate support for
2.5.x into the existing modutils package... it's rather annoying to
have two totally different modutils when switching between 2.[024].x and
2.5.x kernels.

/me is building drivers into the kernel for now, which slows down
debugging, because modules are broken on ia32 and module support isn't
present on alpha at all anymore [AFAICS]...
