None I don't think the problem is as bad as all that

No bad feelings are involved, as far as I'm concerned.  And there is
nothing preventing laptop users from migrating to 2.4 whenever it is

I still distribute PCMCIA drivers that build correctly on 2.3.99* and
work correctly.  Linus and others made a choice to not include some of
that code in the kernel; I pointed out what the issues were and he
made a decision that I disagreed with, but I respect his decision.  I
think it would be very unfair to criticize me for those choices, and
Linus will tell you the same thing.

Compared to the situation with Donald Becker, I think there are a few
differences.  I'm not fighting a "turf war" here, and I'm not blowing
off PCMCIA because I didn't get my way.  I continue to release timely
updates and continue to give feedback and send contributions to Linus
and other kernel developers.

I said there was no easy fix, because there really is no easy fix, not
because I'm holding out on anyone.  It is not unsolvable, but it also
is not something I can fix on my own (and my solution has already been
explicitly rejected).
