    If this was in open source driver, then it would have gotten fixed as soon as possible. When notified, there would be a fix hours later.
    How is this an explanation for the fact that any software could have undisclosed vulnerabilities for years?

    Also, remember the Debian openssl thing? They were applying the bogus patch for almost two years, before someone discovered the issue. And that was open source software!
