Yeah, milang == onion.  He's done this not only for Extreme's console driver, 
but also a semi-working O2 sound driver.  In both cases, he's either claimed 
that his code quality is poor, or his girlfriend was taking up too much time, or 
some other lame excuse.  Even when we randomly nag him on #mipslinux on IRC, he 
just ignores us now :P

This is why for O2's driver, we've just randomly tinker with the only known 
source code version.  Another linux-mips dev, Ladislav Michel (I think) of 
debian apparently also has/had a driver at one point for early 2.6.  But I don't 
know if it's the same as the source one already out there (which was written by 
a "vivian", if I recall correctly), or if his is related to onion's purported 
driver at all.
