Excluding staging would exclude both the original contributors of the drivers and those who help clean them up. Excluding the latter seems uncalled for. Excluding the former denigrates the attempt to contribute at all. That a driver needs work does not make it worthless as a contribution.

As long as staging lives in the main kernel tree (which has made sense so far), the statistics should continue to count it.
