The current sound code changes the API/ABI (at least sysctl stuff).
API/ABI changes are not allowed in -stable except there's a very
strong reason (e.g. security).
Because of this there's no MFC scheduled.
The binary only drivers for -stable from Ariff come with this API/ABI
change and you are using them on your own risk.
Falling out of a twenty story building,
and snagging your eyelid on a nail.
