Subject: Re: [bug?] tg3: Failed to load firmware "tigon/tg3_tso.bin"

> Why is it so difficult to see the value of KEEPING STUFF WORKING AS IT 

Sure Jeff. Lets delete libata, that caused all sorts of problems when it
was being added. We could freeze on linux 1.2.13-lmp, that was a good
release - why break it ?

There are good sound reasons for having a firmware tree, the fact tg3 is
a bit of dinosaur in this area doesn't make it wrong.
