NACK - thanks for the hard work, but I have some updates to go into LRM
besides the ABI bump (such as an updated Broadcom driver). This
inability to coordinate changes is the very reason that Intrepid LRM is
in a git repository. I guess I should look at retrofitting Hardy LRM
using Intrepid LRM as an example.
