    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

    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 :-/
