I wrote a driver from scratch for it for NetBSD to use on MeKa 2009 (and
discovered there was prior art for FreeBSD/OpenBSD *sigh*) but its not stable
yet; there appeared to be some undocumented timing related stuff. The problem
i bumbed into was that it worked fine on my test machine but crashed on the
laptop i wanted to use it on :-/

I'm planning on digging into the FreeBSD/OpenBSD source and try to get it
working again and if it does import it. 

With regards,
