Actually a hard question to answer cause it also left me scratching for long.
However, I can not find right or definite answer.

A convincing explanation is the driver has not been in use since v2.6.37,
but somehow, we are to use it recently.
Anyway, it's better for me as well as no harm to anyone to fix it even though.

Thanks, Wenhu
