    All of this RTFM and what directory the noveau driver is sitting in is
    entirely irrelevant Alan.

    If it effects such a large number of people, which this noveau thing
    does, it's entirely relevant to everyone. And the way it's breaking
    and making kernel development difficult for so many people matters to

    It's about the tester base, and this breakage shrinks the tester base

    Or do you want the kernel tested by less people?
