} But as always, it is about picking the good defaults for GENERIC.

     In NetBSD, GENERIC kernels generally contain everything that could
possibly be useful and doesn't cause problems (some newer drivers are
buggy, some interfere with other devices, and some have caused damage
to hardware).  This means the question is very simple:  is the driver
brand new, or does it cause problems in some way?  If the answer is no
to both questions, then the driver is included; there are no other
factors to the decision.  Note that "cause problems in some way" does
not include consuming resources such as wired kernel memory.
