I don't want to retain all of that history, there are so many broken
points in the history that the only thing you can do is go back and
add Kconfig commits to depend the driver upon BROKEN, and that in effect
changes the history devalueing it even further.

I just want one patch that adds the driver in it's most current state,
and that's all.
