Hi all,

I just finished a preliminary version of the smsc47m1 driver to Linux
2.6. Patch is available here:

It's basically Gabriele Gorla's version, updated to reflect recent
changes to the kernel and fixes to the 2.4 driver, plus some minor
tweaks. As the name says, it's built against 2.6.8-rc2, but any recent
kernel tree (>=2.6.7) should do too.

Note that the patch is completely untested since I don't own a
compatible device myself. But I felt that the port had been pending for
too long and I know that there is an impatient crowd waiting for this
driver to be part of Linux 2.6, so I tried to complete the existing code
into something people could finally try.

Please test if possible, and tell me how it fails for you ;)
