Dear Zaahir Khan,

Then plese debug your driver.  Most  likely  there  are  issues  like
endianess  problems  and/or dealing with PCI addresses - keep in mind
that physical addresses on Sequoia are longer than 32  bit,  so  they
don't  fit  into  a  "u32" as many drivers (incorrectly) assume - you
must use resource_size_t instead of unsigned long and u32 etc.

And you want to update and use a current Linux kernel. Many bugs have
been fixed since 2.6.24.

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
