Comment 56 for bug 565543

I think we've already found the problem. Bu there's another problem.
Whoever's triaging this bug isn't reporting this to developers.

Just to make it clear, the bug has to do with the change from HAL to
DevKit, where DevKit isn't loading appropriate drivers. The drivers
are there, and they work. It has been proved.

Just report this to Device Kit guys and we'll all be happier people.
