    Yes but the support costs for me of allowing that second case aren't
    worth it, if people have a special case they don't lose anything by having
    AGP supported DRM in the kernel or AGP in the kernel all the time..
    whereas I don't have to answer a load of questions from people whose AGP
    cards stop working because they build DRM into the kernel and AGP as a
    module...
