Yes, we certainly don't want a driver to be "near mainline" that does things that the rest of the kernel and other drivers are doing.  We should force them to stay out-of-tree until any and everything is resolved.  Heaven forbid that the code should be merged, contributed, and improved upon as a community.

You'd think these guys were trying to enable folks with a driver so they can use the hardware they bought or something.  Its almost laughable.  What idiots.
