Hey is PRISM54 no longer compiled in a module any more? I had set it
for removal on the feature removal schedule but  I wanted to give you
the heads up we've received a few reports of users unable to use
prism54 over p54pci. It was theorized this would happen but we didn't
have any confirmation, which is why we just didn't remove it.

How would you guys deal with having both enabled.
