Gilles has extracted a the bios and handed it to Eric during the last 
Guadec. Eric had found some obscure Russian datasheets about a weird 
chipset in these tablets, if memory serves.

I'll weigh in as well by saying that having both drivers is a necessity 
for a large number of people and downstream devs.

As for me, I have been unable to use 2.x on a box of mine. I'll probably 
get around to actually sending an email here with whatever info I can 
get, but 1.7.4 provided a nice fallback solution for now.
