Hmm. Given that git history starts at 2.6.12-rc2, and this was introduced
in 2.5 kernels, there's no point me looking, because I know the history
I have access to does not go back to that time.

And I know for certain that the devices list *did* fall out of maintainership
for a while.

FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: 5.8Mbps down 500kbps up. Estimation
in database were 13.1 to 19Mbit for a good line, about 7.5+ for a bad.
Estimate before purchase was "up to 13.2Mbit".
