I've pulled it, but please don't add new drivers in -rc's.

Yes, we traditionally accepted them as hardware enablement, but
honestly, our development cycles are so reliable and consistent these
days that it makes very little sense any more.

So aim for just new device ID additions rather than new drivers,
unless it's some *hugely* popular hardware that actually causes
problems for people bootstrapping the system (ie things like a disk or
network driver from a major company that is expected to actually be
widely available and an actual issue for people trying to install
Linux on their own).
