And alternatively, what?  We let known bugs sit in the tree
because of IRDA?

We've had to edit and hack on lots of obscure ISA ethernet drivers to
do this so far that probably nobody has tried to use in years and very
few people have access to.  Not just trivial changes, we've had to
rewrite some of their probe routines in some cases.

The work simply must be done.

If we add bugs, the first person who tries to use it will find out
and report the problem.
