Its one place it can be. I don't believe there is any public

Fair enough. The current state is basically that some E600T devices happen
to work on certain ports (the logic is similar enough). If you've got one
that doesn't then you are basically on your own.

The last "official" Intel out of tree driver is EMGD 1.18 which supports
Fedora 14 and a couple of other obsolete distros. It may be possible to
use the open bits of that as a basis of adding E680T support but it's
probably a couple of months work for someone sufficiently insa^Wmotivated.
