Unfortunately the only source release I've been able to find is the
last release.
Ouya purposely purged the git history for the current source release,
it's also completely lacking in signoffs and commit history.
[1] is the commit that added this driver to their source.

Their original source release had the git history intact, but I never
got a copy of it before Ouya purged it from their repos.
