I don't know.  (your sentence broke there somehow...)

If we don't provide the devices, we should create them online, that
would be a feasable solution for me.  Or alternatively we have to
remove the drivers that make use of them...

Yes, I already skipped the documentation stuff, since for a long time
I haven't coded I want to do coding instead of documenting this time.

If time comes, documentation comes as well.

At the moment my priorities are bug fixing in the code, not in the
documentation.  Reading the changelog, there are a couple of people
out there working on documentation.  Only very few people work on
the code.

Speaking of code, do you know where the libc is shrinked?  I'd like
to review it and/or to add a function (tracking down the mke2fs bug report)
