Support for new hardware, more than serious bug.

Please drop. Also please drop leds from your monitoring scripts, it
just adds unneccessary workload for everyone. If we see something
_really_ critical, we'll cc: stable.

Actually, I believe your monitoring scripts are doing more harm than
good, and it would be better to get positive confirmation from
contributors before pushing random changes into stable.
