I said that? Heh, I normally say things like "fix all the stupid
drivers", you must have caught me on a good day :)

Anyway, the drivers should be fixed, if they are doing foolish things
like this, the core kernel should not be "protecting them from
themselves", that way lies madness, just talk to the Windows kernel
developers about the hoops they jump through for this type of stuff...
