As a rule we don't enable these sorts of drivers as they are generally
only meant for developers, who generally will be building their own
kernels anyway. But if this one will be used for automated tests then it
makes sense to enable it.

However we should also update the annotations file to note the bug
number which explains why we've enabled it. Can you resend this with the
annotations update?
