    It should not be standardized because every driver maintainer works
    differently, and every driver is developed differently, and therefore
    has different needs and desires for the version number.

    All that matters is that the driver version makes sense to the
    person maintaining the driver, and works for them when reviewing
    bug reports.

    Look, what you're suggesting is to change existing practice and that
    doesn't belong in the discussion of the review of a specific driver.
    If you want to bring that up as a topic and change globally how that
    is handled, bring that up as a seperate topic on linux-kernel.

    Don't bug the poor driver submitter who is just following existing
    and accepted practice.
