On that same note we are getting close to the point where making a stable 2.0
and freezing the API (or at least making no changes that are not backwards compatible)
is getting close. We still have irqs and the ppc to sort out before then.
With that in mind we probably want to introduce a category of TESTED motherboards.
The solo is certainly is not worth dropping out of regression tests because it still
cleanly. But since no one has tested it in a long time marking not marking it TESTED
is likely a good thing.
Anyway something to think about.
