I probably will find the time to add it in, and don't expect any 
problems, but it's not 100% official yet.  But it is definitely a 
"probably" on the high order, as probabilities go.

If people can convince Dave Jones to put the VIA DRM into our FC 
kernels and RHL 9 kernel, I'll likely add it to future XFree86 
erratum for those OS releases also.  I've CC'd Dave for comment 
(and Alan who wrote it, for good measure).  ;o)
