Please remove this from CVS. This won't get merged into the kernel this
way (two slightly different drivers for the same thing: no way), and
thus we don't want this in CVS.

If you can't merge the two drivers youself then it's best to post a patch
here or put it somewhere for download and let someone else do the work.
