Assuming its a GPL licensed driver

1. Post it to a relevant list if you can find one and get folks to test
it

2. Try and find someone appropriate in maintainers to handle the driver.
If there isnt anyone appropriate send it to Linus

3. If you want it in 2.0.x cc me as well

Also before submitting please take a look at

Documentation/CodingStyle
