Add Echoaudio PCI and CARDBUS cards. They released the lowlevel part of
their driver under the LGPL and the firmware in binary only form with the
explicit permission to use it in the Linux kernel
(http://echoaudio.com/Downloads/Developer.php). They were helpful and sent
me a Gina3G when it was released. IIRC they also support the Freebob people
for the Audiofire cards.
