kernel-power: QF9700 - "new" davicom modules for USB->Ethernet dongles lacking in kernel modules

twilight312@gmail.com
Lately, new generation of Davicom's el-cheapo USB->Ethernet dongles
flooded the market. They can be bought for as cheap as ~2$ per (new)
piece, and unlike precedors, works quite reliably (no more MTU
problems, it seems - at least they don't spazm out after ping -s
1400).

There is one problem, though - new chip means, that old dc9601 module
(included in kernel-power) doesn't work anymore. Thankfully, Davicom,
despite having irritating history, released sources for linux modules.
It results in qf9700 module, required by current generation of
dongles. AFAIK, module is working reliably and included in development
distros - sadly, it's lacking in our kernel, even power- one.

Pali/Freemangordon, would it be possible to include mainstream
qf9700.ko module in next version of KP? Of course, version compiled
against current -devel kernel, allowing real-life tests and reporting
back would be appreciated, too. In such case, I'll gladly volunteer as
guinea pig.

Cheers,
/Estel

Ps.

To save searching, here are qf9700 modules for linux and sources + as
(probably useless) addition, android copy of those:
http://lorienart.pl/qf9700.tar

AIUI, any version included in any devel distro is copy of those,
(linux, not android ones), just compiled for matching kernel.
