We are in regression only mode even before -rc1 these days ? including for code that is basically completely unused upstream (which is what this is trying to fix) ? :-) That's rather full-on ... Anyway no biggie, it will just slow down some getting some of the other drivers I suppose, though we can always explicitly list the dependency on this tag to work around it. Cheers, Ben.
