The drivers from Dapper did everything but Just Work. In fact, the only
bug marked as critical at the point of Dapper's release was againt that
particular driver. I happen to know and remember this since I reported
it. :-) That particular driver made my laptop lock hard a couple of
times a day. That hardly constitutes "just working".

Now *that* is true. IIRC, the source is already in the
linux-restricted-modules source package. It should "just" be a matter of
adding a build target to that.
