commit b5811bc469c0dbebb4f947800b9b234a9c0a68dc upstream.

This is only solution I can think of. User decides if he wants this
driver on his machine. I don't have enough knowledge and time to find
the reason why same code works on some machines and doesn't on others
which use the same, or very similar, chipset and processor.
