Are we talking about closed or open source *drivers*? If the drivers are
open, it makes sense for them to reduce the number of compatibility
hacks and is not that bad for us either. In that case asking them to
build the userland tools for FreeBSD-4 isn't that that much of a problem
either, since those should be reasonable independent from the kernel.
