hmm, as i've googled a bit for pentest.c i've realized phasing driver to 
linux kernel drops support for such devices for i.e NetBSD users... and it 
seems some users of such are in fact preferring those over linux... esp. 
linux gets bigger and bigger nowadays...
not to mention i recall i had loads of trouble making never kernel 
versions work on stylistic - over 2.6.31 problems with kacpid consuming 
99% cpu and hibernation started to appear, and i somehow gave up trying to 
investigate why after certain point...

so again, some kind of user-space solution is imho better, esp. it's 
'hardware' is in fact mere serial port, already supported by most OS's.

btw. thanx again for updating current fpit driver :)
