Yes, however the driver is still being worked on.  A ton of new glint code
was just committed to XFree86 CVS by Sven Luther, and this code (if it
compiles) will show up in v19.  Consider trying that when I release it in
the next day or so.

OTOH, since it's Sven Luther code, it may not help you at all, or even make
things worse.  >:-)
