Absolutely. We've had bug-reports about floppies not working, with no
real way to do anything about it.

In fact, I would even mark the patch for stable@vger.kernel.org,
although I'd like it to be in 3.5 for a while before actually
backported. Exactly because we *have* had reports of problems, even
though I think they've mostly been in VM's.

You'll have to fight the current maintainer to the death in the Thunderdome.

What's that, you say? Oh, that there is no current maintainer? Oh,
well. I guess you won't have to fight anybody then.

Tag, you're it.
