Sorry for the delay replying, I have checked this patch in to the
master repository on I have not actually been able
to test it since right now I do not have appropriate target-side
hardware, and my various machines were upgraded to 2.4 kernels quite a
while back so even building the driver is difficult.

Back in May I did try to update the driver to work with 2.4 kernels,
so that it would get auto-loaded courtesy of /etc/hotplug/usb.agent
etc. This mostly worked, but unfortunately I must have got something
wrong because I had a couple of unexpected crashes. Hence the work was
never checked in. If anybody is interested, let me know.
