Much better! The only thing that is unclear from the long description is
whether this is a library or a kernel driver. Looking at the oracleasm
source, it is indeed a kernel driver. You should mention this in the
long description as well.

On a side note, I tried to compile it on for the amd64
architecture, but it failed.
