Would you mind sharing details about the breakage? It was assumed that the patch backported includes the relevant compatibility bits to avoid any breakage. If that’s not the case, we should definitely come up with a way to get existing drivers unbroken again.

It may be either revert, or a new patch that would accommodate for your broken driver. It depends on breakage details. So please share those.

Absolutely. The change was not expected to require any changes for 3party drivers. If it happened, that’s our fault, and maybe we should land something, or revert. We should not leave it broken for 3party drivers.
