Hi Zoran,

please stop sending HTML emails. Your mails are often very hard to
view. Especially the quotations are completely messed up by your MUA
when you play with the font settings.

You can't work around a broken driver without a working driver. But if
they at least didn't compile the driver into the kernel but a module,
you can blacklist that module and everything should be fine.
