    "Software" == "3rd-party kernel modules" in this case, right?

    Remember what had been told to you about in-kernel interfaces? That's
    right, that they can be changed at zero notice. Now, if SuSE told you
    otherwise, you might have a cause to complain. Had they?

    If they'd promised in-kernel interface stability and lied - sure, go ahead
    and nail them to the wall. If not - STFU and eat what you are bloody given.

    Al, not particulary fond of SuSE, but even less so - of misdirecting wankers
    like that...
