This is a different problem, and I agree that upgrading user-space tools
couldn't help in you case. Ben had his chip correctly detected but the
interface exported by the kernel was not known to the (not up-to-date)
user-space tools. In you case this is the kernel driver not supporting
your hardware anymore, that's different.

See my answer to your second post for details about your case.
