    It depends. Some of these integrated gadgets aren't very successful;
    others, however, are. Compare true modems to winmodems, or modern
    videocards with built-in rendering etc to bare ones. Also, on embedded
    systems with very tight memory and speed requirements, a TOE card may be a
    bad, but the only available solution.

    So, IMO, a proposed kernel model must have the means to support similar
    devices. Some will be bad, but some may be good.
