This has been killed :
All drivers have been updated, for example intel one :
It looks like intel-legacy package is just using an older release of
the intel driver (2.3.2) so that was obviously not updated with the
new server changes.
Why does that intel-legacy package still exist ?
Are there any long-standing critical issues that have been reported to
upstream and still not fixed ?
