I agree that this is far from ideal -- I have to deal with this 
all the time.  But I also appreciate that some vendors do 
actually bother to contribute some base code to support their 
designs, even if I have to go in and fix it.

The vendors need to do better job at establishing a framework to 
solicit fixes, improvements and new code from their customers, 
integrate it, and feed it up the tree into the mainline. It is 
clearly to their benefit.
