I would call that bullshit.  Convoluted code is a hindrance.

But I won't argue with you any more.  For me it's totally irrelevant
whether the patch gets into mainline.  The driver is working for me
and if future kernels still won't work with the card I'll just change
it again.  That easy.

But IMHO, you're doing neither developers nor users a favour ...

Ciao, ET.
