David seems to forget that there are thousands of open source drivers "out of tree" because their authors don't have the political clout to get them in, the management thinks they are too obscure, or the management doesn't like them. In the latter group are my favourites: the drivers that bypass the management. A practical consideration is the size of the kernel source tarball: how big is too big?
So why make it difficult for these "out of tree" drivers just to spite some recalcitrant hardware vendors?
