The driver currently in my dir on devel is from a 4.0d tree.  You're free
to use it but with 4.01 release around the corner I was going to wait a

Currently it requires FBDev because I was too lazy to set the modes
directly.  However, I will end up removing this requirement soon.

I don't know, I didn't have to apply any kernel patches for my machine.
