After I browsed the kernel RC bugs, I questionned some debian-kernel
folks on the status of #402475 to see the technical options that were
available. The short summary is that the vanilla driver works for some
persons but the Debian one works for other; the upstream state of the
driver is a bit of a mess because the driver is very young and there
are plenty of branches by various folks for this driver, which doesn't
make it easy to track it.
There did not seem to be any solution to satisfy everybody, so I was
suggested to propose this bug for an etch-ignore tag.
Of course, this is a regression with previous versions of the kernel
which used to work for some people, but since these were never
released, and since the driver works for other people as a bonus, I
think it's ok to ship such a driver into etch.
Coud a RM please tag the bug etch-ignore if he agrees with the
