Thanks for CC'ing me. Lately I got dropped frequently from the
mailinglist (after 1 or 2 days). Guess I should try subscribing via my
own mail server.

Yeah, it would be great if you could help, at the moment I get barely
any sleep, let alone that I could keep up with the majority of mail I
get. I'll let you decide whether you want to be sole maintainer or not.
I still have interest in the subsystem, but it looks like VIA won't
provide any information for their new VX11 chipset IGP for any open
source driver and I'm still looking for a small, quiet mobile device as
a replacement for my precious netbook that broke down last autumn to
allow me working when I'm not at home.

At this point I'd like to thank all people who have helped out so far,
especially Tomi and Andrew.

Best regards,
