Micronas Go7007. Driver is here , I personally use it with  for
MythTV. I could pitch in on it as well.
This would be my first work for lk, though. I'm relatively new to
kernelspace. Recently, I patched Intel's  GPL and BSD code for the
ixp400_eth driver to work against vanilla 188.8.131.52 running on an ixp425
(baby steps to current :-) ).
Speaking of ixp400_eth, would it be possible to merge that one as well?
They have a very clean licensing line. The patch to the kernel tree is
GPL (for ixp400_eth.ko), the code outside the tree (for ixp400.ko) is
BSD, and the firmware is IPL . How big of an issue is the firmware/IPL?
