I understand. My point is that there's nothing to stop DKMS or some other project from using this new API to facilitate getting devices to work either.
Sure, we all recompile our kernels every 10 minutes, but in the real world where there are a million people stuck on some $version of a distro, it'd be real nice if we could have it work with newer devices with such a simple hack rather than have them jump through too many hoops.
The average user isn't going to drop a new device id table entry to lkml :-)
