I happen to have backported the w83793 driver to kernel 2.6.18 for a
friend of mine already. You can pick it from:

In order to build it, you'll need the usual tools (gcc, make) and the
kernel sources matching your running kernel. Just running "make" should
build the w83793 driver, and "make modules_install" as root should
install it. Then all you have to do is "modprobe w83793".
