What's happening with the OSS drivers ?
I'm still carrying a few hundred KB of changes from 2.4 for those.
I'm not going to spent a day splitting them up, commenting them and pushing
to Linus if we're going to be dropping various drivers.

I think this should wait until at least some more of the 2.4 changes
come forward. Most of those are security issues and the likes, but there
are a few driver corner cases too.
