I'm cc:ing Arnaud, (Arjen, feel free to weigh in as well) but when a
driver is developed based on experimentation rather than a
well-defined protocol specification, I personally think that the
advantages of "releasing early and often" outweigh the disadvantages
of keeping the changes only in the trunk. It looks like the
megatec_usb driver in 2.2.0 and 2.2.1 does not support the Phoenixtec
protocol, but that shouldn't affect current users of megatec_usb.
Also, given that the reconnection feature has been somewhat tested in
other drivers, it is not as risky as introducing something completely
