Please do not remove rl. I have two rl interfaces in a machine built in 
2011 still in daily use. One rl interface is an aftermarket card bought 
new in *2016*. The other one is built into the motherboard. That's just 
the stuff I personally own. rl is in lots of machines which will 
probably still be running a decade from now.

I'm astonished you're considering removing rl given how common it is.
