After reading the quote a few times I see your point. I guess it depended on how you read "Its required on all new systems". I read it more alone the lines of the hardware has changed so if you want to support the new hardware you can make it work. After re-reading it I can see that it can be taken as "We need it on all our new systems so merge this".

My word, I feel like this is 8th grade poetry class, where everyone
is trying to interpret the phrase and meaning of every single line.

That was a summary of over 40 drivers, and was a very long message. If anyone wants any specific clarification, did anyone think to actually
ask me?

Oh, and as for this driver, Intel told me to drop it, they don't want
it in the kernel anymore as the team has been disbanded, and they no longer
care about the code.

Would the code have done anything useful were it fixed up, I wonder?

Perhaps, try it out, it's not like it is hidden anywhere...
