I'm going to be at Plumber's next week and I'll find out then what is the
status of the hch driver. Based on that, we can come to a decision. There
is no sense duplicating effort and if I can help pull in that driver it might
make more sense to help them. As for the mini-pci version, I added
a comment to the Launchpad bug you filed seeking comment. If there
is no one sufficiently interested, it might be a waste of time. Then again,
if there is pull, it might be useful to evaluate adding pci support to the
new one. YMMV. All this is based on what I find out next week.
Thanks for replying.
