    That makes driver debugging almost impossible. It also makes building a
    test kernel set for a lot of boxes impractical. The completely broken
    unload stuff is going to be a real pig, PCMCIA only works modular and
    doesn't work now the unloads are all broken. OTOH the module rewrite has
    some nice features and a combo modutils is going to sort some of the
    problem out fairly easily.

    The biggest need though is documentation so people can actually fix all
    the drivers for this stuff.
