Ubuntu 7.10 PowerNow! issue with future AMD processors

The PowerNow! driver included in Ubuntu 7.10
has a flaw that prevents it from loading on
AMD family 0x11 processors (which have not
been released).  AMD considers Ubuntu 7.10 an
important software platform for family 0x11
processors.  We would like to get a patch
added so that the driver can work.

What would be the best way to go about 
getting such a patch added?
