George Joseph submitted the driver on 2008-05-29 and then he updated
the driver on 2009-10-15 for 2.6.30 and many developers are able to
test it and used it.

Are you able to compile the driver with latest kernel git.

Many new Intel Motherboards are coming with this chip, if we complete
this driver then it will be great.

Please provide your review so that we can discuss about this driver
and make relevant changes to accept it.
