Ah, nice!  In that case, I'm a lot less worried -- we can just expose
both versions/devices by default and there's no need for a visible
control knob tied to driver version (except maybe for debugging).

It means an 'unsupported' device appearing on other/older OSes, which is
unfortunate, but ISTR only Windows really complains visibly about that.
