# Known bugs/limitations:
+# - You will see a lot of "compile errors" from the C-pre-processor.
+# Recommented workaround is using I/O redirection. example given
+# src/util/get-pci-ids > pci-ids 2> /dev/null
+# - Getting the PCI-IDs is more as just reading file as `grep` does,
+# so be warned that it takes long. (More then seven minutes on my system.)
# - Does not recognize all drivers because some require special cflags.
# Fails also on some drivers that do belong to other architectures
# than the one of the machine this script is running on.
