    No, it also survives as an add-on tarball for the standard kernel:

    Let me dig through my old mail so I can quote Linus on this... Here's
    what he said in his Linux 2.4.8 announcement message (Subject
    "Linux-2.4.8", sent on August 10th of this year):

    The impression I get (for 2.4) is that DRM 4.1 comes standard but you
    should still be able to use 4.0 if you want, via that tarball.
