Neat.  Please forgive my laziness: how does this compare to


?  Have you tried contacting platform-driver-x86@vger.kernel.org,
Martin Večeřa (ja on the server marvec.org), and Jonathan Woithe
<jwoithe@physics.adelaide.edu.au> to talk about what it would take to
get the patch to apply to a recent kernel and get it merged into
mainline?  The file Documentation/SubmittingPatches in the kernel
source contains some instructions for getting feedback on patches.

(Merging with Bug#631664 because both are about adding support for the
same hardware.)

Thanks much for this work and thanks for the heads up.
