I guess they took that direct from Broadcom, and no-one has
tried to rewrite it as they have many other things to do. Actually
they currently have to spend time re-merging the patches with
every new kernel so it would be in their interest to get them
included, but I am not sure how much they simply take what
Broadcom gives them and how much (at the kernel level) they
