    Most problems with the 2.0-series of kernels are not from new drivers, but
    rather from other, deeper fixes. They were unfortunate, but I assume they
    were necessary to change. Most driver changes were actually just updates
    to make them work better.

    If the even-numbered kernels are not to be updated with new drivers I
    think they would have to be more frequent.
