mkinitrd and similar scripts must be updated, so that drivers that
worked prior to dwmw2's changes will continue to work after dwmw2's changes.

If you fail to update some script somewhere, then the driver will be
copied into the initramfs, but not the firmware, with obvious results.

This is not a fail-safe system.

This is an enforced-breakage, flag-day change that will cause a lot of
additional work for a lot of people.
