Well but the thing is: Without the drivers you would not be able to use
the system at all and I guess if they happen to brake it is easier to
stick with the old working kernel till drivers are fixed then to do
nothing. Sure I am aware of the security implications this might have but
then again using external modules is not something we endorse and people
should be warned about also in a security sense.
