    Hi Adrian,

    I have somewhat mixed feeling about the patch. Some solutions is
    definitely needed but I don't like allocating memory that will never
    be used. I think I would perfer #ifdefing gameport support is OSS
    modules, _if_ #ifdefs are out of line and not in the middle of code

    I'll let Vojtech decide which way he wants to go - he could probably
    apply the patch and then we could convert drivers one by one and kill
    the stubs later.
