It is.  They are coinstaller dlls and are mentioned in the corresponding
.inf and .cat files, so the driver wouldn't install without them.

There are also other files that sometimes are and sometimes aren't
referred to in the corresponding .inf.  I think we need to stop
filtering by extension at all and copy everything from the directory
where .inf resides.

I wonder if we can stay with the flat structure at all...
