These strings are sometimes useful to maintainers when handling bug
reports. Vendors and users often replace drivers with out-of-tree
versions to gain features that aren't included in the in-kernel version
(because of licensing issues, etc...). I have had this happen with ov511
a number of times, so I add the "for Linux 2.4" now.
