Well, you can propose a modified wording of the amendment which cures that,
i don't care all that much myself, because i don't own a qlogic based card,
but when i asked the d-i team what the qlogic situation would be, and if they
at least intented to propose some hints of a workaround for users of qlogic
cards in the release notes, and got a "No way" back from frans, i think the
critics are warranted.
