There seem to be several black|white lists floating around.
This would appear to be an ongoing task keeping up with the

compatibilities and often requires kernel or module rebuilds
and means ever-growing lists.
For some time i have been thinking that a common black|white
list API might be worthwhile. Along with this would be the
ability to examine and modify, or at least add to, the lists
