Bug#622850: linux-2.6: Please enable Hyper-V drivers

Package: linux-2.6
Severity: wishlist


I recently had the joy (?) of installing Debian in Microsoft's hypervisor,
Hyper-V. While the hypervisor is non-free (like e.g. VMware), the Linux
kernel contains free host drivers that greatly increase functionality
(e.g., you can access raw devices, have drives larger than 128GB, you get
networking access without going through an emulated 100Mbit/sec card,
you get heartbeat functionality to the hypervisor, etc.).

They currently exist in the staging tree, and have been there since 2.6.32
or thereabouts.
