I have at least two computers that I've had to use hotplug blacklist entries
on at various points, including one where the blacklist entry is still
needed in 2.6.12.  Given that reboots are not always under control of the
admin, I don't think "read NEWS.Debian before rebooting" is much protection.

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
