I said "almost everywhere", not "everywhere". I'm fully aware that
there's tons of old chips that need dedicated drivers, and that amd
wants to do some fancy stuff in their -pro version. But besides those
I do see a fairly clear push towards having standardized/generic kms
userspace, so don't really see that much value in updating all the
vendor specific drivers. And outside of X the push is even stronger.

So no pipe dream at all, it's happening.
