This is going way too far. Someone please deal with this.

No, just tell me how it might magically create bugs in drivers

cause breakage in previously correct drivers, please raise
your specific concerns with me.

I have tried to be careful about this, and put in bugs/warnings
where problems in already broken code are magnified.
