In my sarcastic opinion, you suggestion would only change 2 lines in
linux/Makefile.
Just try it and tell me if Linux becomes more stable.

I have received very few problem descriptions about the BSD ported driver.
Must I guess that only you and friends of yours have had problems with the
driver?
I am in vacation from 2 to 17 August. I invite you and friends to send me
asap the description of the problems you have had with the driver.

Having problems with a driver (or any other software) does not always mean
that there is a bug in the code. The driver code can only be suspected.
At the moment, the remaining problems that have been reported to me for i386
architecture seems to happen under FreeBSD too. They will be fixed by
Stefan Esser in a future release of the shared part of the driver.
Reported problems related to the Linux specific code have always been
fixed (I think).
