My things-to-worry-about folder still has 244 entries. Nobody
seems to care much. Poor me.

This is the kind of crap that happens when drivers in the kernel
are not self contained, and need "external stuff" to work properly.
It means that simple things like NFS root over the device do not
work in a straightforward, simple, and elegant manner.
I am likely to always take the position that device firmware
belongs in the kernel proper, not via these userland and filesystem
loading mechanism, none of which may be even _available_ when
we first need to get the device going.
