There will be a new driver in kernel 2.6.33 for this CPU family. Until
it gets merged, the patch is there:

Support for the F71889FG was merged last week:

So you'll need kernel 2.6.33 for this system, once it is released (in
~3 months.) If you have the possibility to test the drivers before that
and to report, that would be great.
