I removed it since PR 17761 claims it was functionally broken since
2002 -- is that not correct?

The last times I tried it it left out some intermediate busses all
the time, but those were easy to add (didn't try to fix it as I
don't like (looking at) perl). E.g. atapibus at, atabus at were
always lacking. But these are a) pretty easily added manually once
you know that or b) shouldn't be too hard to fix for either the
original author (if he still can read it) or any other perl coder?

Removing it seems a bit brutal to me (but also a very understandable
indication that you don't want to mess with perl either :)).

It's broken, but it's a better starting point than just guessing at what
to comment out in GENERIC. I've not tried dmassage, but can't you just
add it back saying that it's a starting point for kernel customization?
I use it fairly often when I get a new system.
