Well, the driver used to work and appears to be useless without it. I guess
I'm wondering why it was kept out of the firmware directory where all the
other firmware lives (and so allow the driver to simply continue to work
and allow it to be compiled in).

At the moment all the change appears to have done is break things that have
been working without issue since before the driver was even in staging.
