Hi Chris,

(Not meaning to hijack your thread) - MPSS gives me and others a 
headache. As a result of it and some other goals we (PathScale) have 
started to work on enhancing their kernel driver.


If you have any trouble building that on your distribution please let me 
know. We plan to work with Intel on our changes and hopfully any "fixes" 
in this area would make it upstream.
