While I still hold the ereaders using these controllers in high regard
as my first kernel hacking project, reality is that I don't think I'll
ever continue on trying to mainline these and if later someone wants
to resurrect these (very old now) devices, they'll probably need a drm-
driver anyway. So for the removal
