Lots of hardware just works.  It's vendors that cannot or will not
share the specs of their cards that have trouble.  The best solution
would be to complain to the vendor to open up their specs.

Fedora's goal is to stay as close to upstream as possible and provide
very current versions.  For the kernel, this means that the interface
does change sometimes.  It is a simple fact.  If you don't like it,
please take your case to LKML.  It is ridiculous, pointless,
counterproductive, and IMO off-topic to bring it up here --
repeatedly.
