I understand that the drivers are compiled into the kernel but why is the API so tightly coupled to the kernel?
Can I install the drivers in a way so I don't have to reinstall the drivers every time there is an update?
The fact I can use the driver again and compile it means the driver is valid. Then why do I need to do this manually?
Link to driver I use
