Yes, it sounds like a lot to do. OF course, if I _knew_ that it would
allow me to make my drives faster, then I'd lobby you a bit more. How
can I determine if this specific chip set is supported in 2.4.20? Maybe
it's a 2.5.X device or something?

Here's the specifics:

Can I go look at some sort of README to see what 2.4.20 supports?
