Not all, only ones that re-use existing kernel driver but enable it for
new hardware (i.e. adding a new pci-id/usb-id/dts entries).

Again, that's basically all our device-tree patches. And that can break
in all sorts of ways. So again, please drop. This does not belong in

This is part of the criteria we use to select patches, yes? If you have
an objection around this particular patch then please let me know, or if
you have an objection around hardware enablement patches in stable then
we can have a bigger discussion around that one.

However, just dropping this one for no particular reasonisn't the right
approach: we've been using this selection criteria for quite a few years
