I don't really understand why you would not want to change the code revision
part of the filename.

I totally agree that you don't want to change the driver every time the
firmware gets a bug fix, but wasn't that the whole point of splitting the name
into API and code revisions portions, and symlinking the file to one that just
has the API version?

What's the issue with using the process as originally documented?
