You might want to cc the maintainer if you expect a response. :)

The driver was written during 2006 and for various technical reasons 
could not be fully merged into the kernel. This lead to a major conflict 
between kernel developers. As a result of a major disagreement I took 
down my development trees and instructed Mauro not to merge my code with 
my agreement.

A few trusted members of the community have taken the previously public 
tree and patched it and made it available for download, which is well 
within the license agreement.

The HVR4000 driver isn't going anywhere soon, it isn't going to be 
official merged anytime soon. I made myself clear a few months ago 
during the heated multiproto debate.

That's where we stand today.
