my driver works with pd without hacking, but only in "emulation" mode,
which is not the fastest version. (You have to wait for Miller to tell you
more about this).
I do have a native mode version though, which should be lying arounf
somewhere on my ftp site, (if there is a file called s_linux_blocked, you
have the right version).

I am not able to check right now, because I am on holiday too.
