Philippe probably doesn't have physical access to most of the
drivers he is converting.

But, he is the only person working on converting all of the drivers,
and therefore when the change looks straightforward I am going to
reward his work and effort by applying his changes and hope there
isn't any fallout.

Those who really care can test his patches and give a Tested-by:

Thanks.
