We have 2 2650s and 3 2550s and some other misc boxes running
4.9-STABLE as of Feb 9 or Mar 19, and they've all been behaving
well (one unexplained reboot, but on slightly twitchy hardware..)
We don't use the bge driver on the 2550s, as we couldn't get it
to behave OK, but other than that things seem to be OK.
