I suppose it's a mere novelty that it does build on Linux;  but with
linux arches being supported stable, and kfreebsd itself now not, it
seems like time to remove it there, yes.

OK I agree, I don't see any point to burden release team with that part.
 But let's upload the -RC4 snapshot from SVN with the pre-approved
bugfixes, fix the security bug, and make it kfreebsd-any, tying off all
those loose ends.

The driver backport seems like something we'd add into our unofficial
stable release later, as it's a crash bug for someone having that
particular hardware.
