This is a Sandy Bridge board, isn't it ?
Maybe you can try a kernel from the -next tree; that might solve your problem.
That means you would have to download, compile and install the kernel, though.
To test a standalone driver, all you have to do is to download it, then run "make"
followed by "sudo make install". You don't have to build the entire kernel.
