    Wow, is there a trap I missed somewhere?
    The trap is that:
    1) It's just a shim between signing-jailed binary blob firmware running on card's built-in CPU and binary blob userspace.
    2) Userspace API with that shim is unstable.
    3) It's not feature-complete with its firmware API either.

    It's just a fancier shim and empty-gesture PR move. Not much different from bundled shim or Broadcom's "open-source drivers".
    But fanatics love to get excited around their corporate slop all the sameā€¦
