Rust-only means that there is no alternative C driver, and that the bulk of the logic (not the calls to kernel-wide abstractions) is implemented in Rust.

when does it resolve to never

@Jono3h If the use of Rust in the kernel gets deprecated before any consumer-grade driver makes it in. Highly unlikely, but felt correct to add it.

If this resolves to a kernel version not yet listed, I'll add new vote entries. I'll also extend the resolution deadline as needed.
