Not yet, but I can't really say I've been looking - unfortunately real
life got in the way of anything over christmas. I'm not sure I do
either, but it really depends on what's required. From what I can see
from maintaining another driver then as long as the driver is working
there's not a whole lot to do.

Oh, I would have stripped it *right* down and removed every card except
my TBS6280. The end result would probably be pretty close to Soeren's at
that point anyway, so I was starting to think like what you've done and
base it on that instead.

Looks like a good start, I'd be tempted to remove all the other cards
though unless you have them available to test with. Keeps the submission
simpler and less to worry about, they can be added back in later if
someone has an itch to scratch (and hardware to test with!).

I do have a few other tbs 716x cards available here at work so might be
able to test some others out, but we're a bit busy at the moment so
would have to be on my own time and there's not much of that available
at the moment either :(


Jemma.
