SubjectRe: Driver Model 2 Proposal - Linux Kernel Performance v Usability
I just have one quick question about all of this:

People mention that driver interfaces don't change much in stable
releases, but if memory serves, symbol versioning information changes
with each minor release, requiring a recompile of modules.

Would it be possible to have a driver module which can be dropped into,
say, 2.6.17 that can also be dropped into 2.6.18 as long as the
interface doesn't change?
