Making It Work

Not supported (and probably never will be).

On November 27, 2008 Micronas informed the developer who was doing the integration (Devin Heitmueller) that he would not be permitted to release the completed drx-j driver due to concerns of "trade secrets, competitor access and support" (the Linux driver incorporated reference driver source code provided by Micronas).
