Uh huh.  Unless he's removed most of the configuration
entries for every device and sundry from there, I'd say
"no, it's not quite there yet".  :-)

The good news: the user needn't be concerned about those
devices unless he actually has those devices.  Of course
the bad news is that he might have to take inventory on
his system -- an issue if he was just handed a system with
no documentation.

I'll admit if this report is true I'll have to see if I
can get 2.6.19 to do UML; I've had problems in that area
with earlier kernels.
