I'm not sure what these would buy for us?  Looks like we would just
be cutting-out support for some drivers...?

These probably send shudders up the spines of anyone involved w/
supporting Fedora kernels.  I would not expect to see them enabled
in any "official" Fedora kernels anytime soon.

You may wish to look here:

Please note that the FC4.jwltest kernels do _not_ have the collection
of upstream networking fixes that are in the FC4.netdev series.
Also, don't blame me if you laptop explodes...ha-ha, only serious.
