the thing is, we released them into 5.1/updates at the time.... but I 
did not move them into 5.2 since I was expecting it to be in the distro 
already included. But they never made it upstream into the distro at all.

So my question really is, should we move them up into centos-testing, 
see if it works, and if so, move them into centos-extras for the time 
being, while we wait for upstream to have a clear policy on what they 
are doing with these drivers.
