Hmm, so does that mean that unless things change drastically
one way or the other, laptop users with PCMCIA cards will not
be able to migrate to 2.4 when it is released?
This reasoning sounds remarkably similar to the bad feelings surrounding the network driver changes in the late 2.3 kernels and the Donald Becker crafted generic network drivers (like the eepro100 for instance).
I hope this does not degenerate into a similar situation.
Isn't there some sort of compromise that could be reached?
