Hi Jochen,

thank you for your work. I see the table values are gone and
parameters are computed by the code.

I will only be able to test this driver in a couple of days, as I do
not have the hardware (Cinergy T USB XE Ver.2) with me at the moment.

Do you prefer me to apply the patch to one tree in particular?
