AFAIK these features are currently unsupported:

- jog dial, shouldn't be to difficult to make a driver I guess
  it might be a PS/2 device and the data stream traceable with 'mev'
  from the 'gpm' package
- camera, which is probably an USB device, which doesn't mean
  it will work out of the box, but there is a chance
- the display dimming, which is probably a BIOS32 function
- IrDA, there are reports about SIR working, what about FIR?
- modem, I got reports about a working modem, at least for some models

I don't know about

- sound?
- firewire?
- GPS/GSM ??
- memory stick

hint, I would like to have such a machine and work on it ;-)

Or more serious, what about a Linux VAIO Project?
