Slightly delayed while USB NDIS was sorted out, I will be moving ahead with
disabling the build of all IFF_NEEDSGIANT drivers in HEAD later today.

And this date is probably going to remain about the same.
Anyone who is interested is welcome to step in and update/fix drivers on the
removal path at any time, and drivers can also be restored later easily if
drivers are updated outside the tree as well.
