Actually, this has been discussed on the MUSCLE mailing list (as implied
in the ubuntu bug report): I've upgraded the driver to be compiled on
2.6.17. It works fine (even better actually) with 2.6.18 and 2.6.19.

Latest version I've published is there:

Since then, I've cleaned up the code a bit, but no bug fix. I'll try to
update the version when I'm back home today ;-)

Actually, I've never submitted the driver to the LKML mainly due to lack
of test. I don't have any usable smartcard to check that everything
works. If you could confirm it works, or tell me where it fails, it
would be great!
