The driver I found to perform best is the one available on MeeGo, which
is also based on DDK 1.7. However, it stills performs poorly.

I would suggest you to reconsider switching to DDK 1.9 if this (in
theory) can improve the performance -- In my opinion is better to risk a
bit of unknown amount of work and get the chance of creating something
good, than to go with something that is already known to perform poorly.

By the way... do you know where I can find a driver built with the DDK
1.9? I'm eager to try it and see if it performs better than the ones
based on DDK 1.7 available.
Is there any distribution or website out there distributing such drivers?

Having at least one driver that performs good would be greatly welcomed
for all the Linux users that are suffering the lack of support for this
