That argument is pretty useless right now. Please *test* e100 and *report 
issues*. I recently did some very intensive suspend/resume testing (and fixes) 
on e100 and I have yet to hear of any problems with it since... that was 2.6.18 
or so even.

I don't think I need to NAK this. I doubt that Jeff Garzik will apply this in 
the first place. eepro100 is on it's way out, so let's focus on what matters.
