Yeah, Scott is the one who brought *me* in on this, so he deserves plenty of thanks as well. He's even written code that actually *uses* the card. :)

(My main focus was cleaning up the driver, making it work on kernels newer than 2.6.24-ish, making it work on 64-bit hosts, etc, all of which is now the case).

Nb: also just got mail from Greg KH just a bit ago, the driver has been merged into the staging tree upstream. Woo!
