Greetings;

I've not seen a forcedeth mention go by on this list for quite some
time unless I made it.  It has been quite bulletproof here so I don't 
feel the need for it to remain dependent on the experimental status in 
the main .config.

Hence this patch to remove that requirement from the appropriate 
Kconfig.

I know of one issue that remains, which seems to have hit a few Gentoo users.

See
http://www.ussg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0502.0/0219.html
and
http://bugs.gentoo.org/90069

It's been reported to this mailing list, but I've also asked the affected
Gentoo users to file a bug at the kernel bugzilla.
