It's OK for me not to make it hot-pluggable, but in this case you need the
following patch to make it possible to compile the driver statically into
the kernel (currently it fails with a .text.exit error at the final

Ah thanks, I had the feeling that something was wrong with my patch but I
didn't know what...
