I don't have special plans about this driver.

Probably would be interesting to maintain it in an external project,
as you have said. Someone has just thought about it [1]. Anyway I
would prefer to use qi-hardware resources for it.

However, I would like to clean the code and probably a possible
inclusion in the Linux Driver Project [2]. The main problem is the
lack of datasheet or specification from the chip vendor, so we can not
get the whole driver under control without a hard work.
