So I have to admit that I think it's a 20+ year old legacy and
insecure protocol that nobody should be using.

When the maintainer can't really even test it, and it really has been
deprecated that long, I get the feeling that somebody who wants it to
be maintained will need to do that job himself.

This seems to be a _very_ niche thing, possibly legacy museum style
equipment, and maybe using an older kernel ends up being the answer if
nobody steps up and maintains it as an external patch.
