I've been researching the HQCT for a while. I am very interested in an updated driver. I am currently running linux-2.6.22-gentoo-r5 and when I try to compile the source from the file earlier in this thread I get:
I Don't have any hardware yet but I'm planning on going with

- Pico-itx from VIA
- Lilliput 7" Touchscreen
- Amp9 to drive my stock speakers
I will probably need to add a USB hub later so I can add GPS, Wireless G, ODB-II (but I might just use the com port for that) and anything else that's cool.
So far, I think I can get really close to getting it all in my double din space.
Anyway back to the driver. I think I might be able to get something working based on your demo.c; but I have no idea about kernel drivers. I came across something about the config.h not being in the new kernel sources, but I don't remember where, and haven't been able to find it again yet.
If you have current code that works well, then I would be glad to help test. But I'm not going to buy the hardware without a pretty good start on a driver.
I think my local radio station (the one I listen to out of only 3 or 4 in my area) recently got RDS hardware. I don't currently have that capability, but I would be willing to help out when I get my stuff.
The HQCT seems to be the most elegant method because I can get it in my dash.
I am ready to start buying next week if I can find everything I need. What you have done looks really good. I hope I can help with it as well as benefit from it.
