I have made the "real" (or so I think) solution to this problem which
essentially hardens the core so that it very explicitly takes over the
descriptor from the driver.

I'm just having it spin a bit around the 0day build servers (they
don't seem to respond right now). I built all patched drivers
I could easily configure in locally.

I am planning to respin the rest of the cleanups making the core only
handle descriptors on top of it.
