It makes a difference for driver maintainers when users
report bugs and we ask them for the version printed
by the driver so that we know which fixes have been
applied.

You know, if people are going to be jerky about this,
I'll just include the version bump in the actual bug
fixes which I sometimes do anyways.

Thanks for bringing this up, it's a useful use of
everyone's time :-/
