I'm a member of the Debian Linux kernel team. We have a general policy that any features added to the kernel package should already have been accepted for inclusion in some later upstream version of Linux. If a driver has not been accepted then it should be packaged separately. We have made an exception for speakup so that it can be used during installation, but we do not want to carry this patch indefinitely. I talked to Greg Kroah-Hartman about this briefly and he would welcome a submission of speakup for inclusion under 'staging'. Is there any reason not to do this?
