    * Only some side feature would be missing without a patch ?
    * Updates to major distributions are expected in time for launch and everything will work with minimal input from user?
    A user who picks up one of the new cards simply needs kernel 4.7. If your distro of choice provides speedy updates for kernels then this wont be a problem, if you have a distro that doesn't update their kernel OR uses one of the LTS kernels then you may have more of a problem as there isn't word as to whether these changes will be ported back to the older LTS's. I'm pretty sure that the 4.7 kernel is the next LTS so that may also change things for some distros.
