Re: [herbert@gondor.apana.org.au: Re: Bug#161931: kernel-image-2.4.19-k7: VESA driver for console]


        All right. If we are embarking on the path of substituting the
 maintainers judgment by our own, I personally would include both
 vesafb and fbcon as builtin, and address the other non modular drivers
 as and when I feel the demand for them has increased to the point
 that including them is justified.  Unfortunately, this is a matter of
 exercising judgment, and I do not have solid reasoning or datas to
 back up my gut feelings.

	What I am unsure about is whether I have the grounds to cause
 my judgment to override the maintainers in this case. I don't have
 the hubris to assume that I know so much better than the maintainer.
