Only if they are cleaned up first. All of the drivers that are still in staging do have issues, otherwise we'd already had moved them. A few of them are OK codestyle wise, but do have ABI issues which need to be resolved before they can be moved.
Where I can find ABI issues which need to be resolved so that these can be looked upon.
