I applied the patch after applying your 2 other patches:

1) "eliminating whitespace"
2) "Switch the AW9D-MAX over from port probing to the
    preferred DMI probe method".

The patch applied and the module loaded without any problems.

Syslog Entry:
Jan 8 10:49:36 localhost kernel: abituguru3: found Abit uGuru3, 
motherboard ID: 001A

Thank You Guys Very Much,

    Nick Pasich
