As opposed to the huge amount of sense it currently makes to
collect it depending on your NIC manufacturer, as opposed to
dependent upon a config option?

If you mean that the option should be labelled 'not for
the paranoid' I agree. The patch does that. 'Experimental'
means the code may crash, or perform other than as advertized.
