Other people told me that they believe that nowadays all modern
thinkpads use a kernel driver.

This is the complete list of groups which I'd rather stop using:

    fuse (I have no idea about how FUSE works)
    kvm (what are the security implications of access to /dev/kvm?)
    rdma (infiniband devices)
    scanner (do SCSI scanners still exist? how are they used?)
    tss (TPM devices, do select users have a need to access them?)

The other major reason to do this is that non-standard groups which are
not in /etc/groups break some systems which use LDAP.
