Yes: miriac Module: PM854 (and some others)

I've read your last mails in this list... therefore I am asking. :-)
I just don't want to re-invent the wheel twice. In the pm854 specific
things there are also some OCP updates. (Well, I am still reading lots 
of code... newland for me)
I try to contact the developer Josef Wagner at Microsys who was working
on the 2.4.26-sth.

I am comparing 2.4.26-sth with 2.6.10 now. The changes are manageable as 
far as I got it. Where can I get the current work from you?!
