All I did was merely enable the driver to be built on my desktop,
something that any developer should have done, right?

And why can't the code be built for any architecture, what is forcing it
for only one platform?  That's not the way drivers should be written,

So please fix the real problem, don't just confine it to one
architecture, what is to keep this from showing up on another chip soon?
