It seems to me...
That if chipzilla doesn't want to do fixes to a chip, then they should hand over the capability to the user community so they can do the job. Of course it won't happen, because the chip has some proprietary stuff that is still used in current devices or some such legal talk (resolved to "NO").
If this keeps up, we will do CPUs as they do automobiles in Cuba. Just fix it.
I don't hold out much hope.
