The reduction we're talking about, is getting rid of nodes where the
driver name is "unknown" (this is useless to us anyway), and splitting
the data udebs into several. For example, we don't need to know anything
about CDROMs in a net install floppy, we only need to know about NICs,
as soon as the network is configured, we can download a full listing.
