It's really not the norm to add card into the RaQ2, or cube.

May be if Alex wants, to, but I sure wouldn't include all type of 
possible PCI cards in the kernel just in case.

Each person if free to compile what they fell they needs. I see no good 
reason to roll out a big fat kernel to everyone and have plenty of 
unused stuff distribute to everyone in case a minority wants to use one 
possible card.

That's like saying the needs of the few out way the needs of the many...

Sorry, I don't by into that personally.

That may be just me, but that what I think.
