> Do you still have the patch for async load?

Oh yes.  I should check it against 3.7

And for the record, it's a complete new loader, one module for both
eMagic boxes,  so the patch consists of removing several files and
adding new ones.

Correct. There were other [minor] problems in the old loader, but
without fixing the deadlock, it's all sort of moot.  Also, the 6|2
loader is currently trying to use firmware for some other device--
it's not 6|2 firmware.  if you do succeed in loading what's currently
shipping, the device simply crashes.

So, I came to the conclusion a few years ago i was the last person
using eMagic boxes (though people since then have sent me mail for the
driver, so I know that's not quite true).
