    The aic7xxx driver used to be this way. It hid the fact that the
    aic7xxx driver was completely open source and that anyone could
    take the code, improve it, or build custom behavior from it. Firmware
    tweaks are often the only way to achieve certain behavior. For
    example, a real time system may want to embed certain types of
    recovery behavior in the firmware to reduce recovery latencies.
    The power of Linux and OpenSource systems in is that everything
    is provided so you can make the system what you need, not what
    was spoon fed to you.
