    Even "compiled in" drivers need tweaking, so you can run the same kernel on
    two machines where SB uses different IRQs for instance. Sure, "completely
    right" would be to have the OS figure out everything by itself. Welcome to
    the wonderful world of PC hardware (with its assorted braindamages and
    random incompatibilities).
