I very want see this driver in Fedora:

This is free and even packaged, so no problem there...

This module has very sad story - since, it was made as a result of
direct reverse engineering (no "clean room" techniques were used), it
produced series of flamewars in LKML. As a result it was rejected from
inclusion into main kernel tree. More to say, the firmware status is
also unclear.


Ehhh, shit.
Peter, thank you for clarification. Can you provide link to this discussion in LKML if don't forgot how find it?
