Backports provide drivers released on newer kernels backported for usage on older kernels. Always use the latest stable release! The project started since 2007 and was originally known as compat-wireless, evolved to compat-drivers and was recently renamed simply to backports. Both daily snapshots based on linux-next, and stable releases based Linux's stable releases are provided. As of the v3.10 based release over 830 device drivers are backported.
