Most certainly is your business as much as anybody elses, and complete
IMO upgrade is a complete non-issue, drivers that are no longer
maintained and obviously don't work should be marked as such in Kilo
and probably removed as well. Removal question etc is up to PTL and
Core but my two cents is they're useless anyway for the most part.
