Comment 113 for bug 565543

Just so that everyone understands. These are fairly new devices so
developers don't have access to them to fix this issue.
I have the same kind of problem. Unfortunately, I don't have the kind
of money needed to buy a device with this kind of device and send it
as a gift to some kernel developer... or the knowledge to write the
code myself. Bummer. :\
