Yes, the driver is quite obsoleted. It was added long ago with
arch/mips/jmr3927 and not maintained long time, as like as the board
I know both MontaVista and CELF have new driver for the chip. If
anybody in MontaVista did not complain I can send CELF's one available
at http://tree.celinuxforum.org/pubwiki/moin.cgi/PatchArchive. (it
