In reply to: Stable API
Parent article: Quote of the week
As you say, the kernel devs don't have a stable API high on their wishlist. So instead of trying the impossible and let all of them work the way you want, it's more realistic to do the work yourself (with similar minded people), and to keep a stable API branch, one way or the other.
Personally I think it's best to just get all out of tree drivers merged into mainline, no matter how obscure the driver, as that's what most kernel devs seem to want. Also unrealistic, I know. But if they can't handle the flood, then they might change their mind.
