I'm going to speak up as someone who uses the in-kernel code without
problems (on my Dell Inspiron 5000e and Dell/3Com CardBus 10/100 NIC).
The in-kernel support always seems to get a bad rap, so I want to mention
that, for some people anyway, the in-kernel code works just as well as
the external code.

I do understand that the in-kernel support isn't as mature as the external
support yet. However, it isn't universally broken and useless either.
