Currently it's not supported because it's new and the vendor didn't care 
about linux support in advance, probably because only a few users were 
asking for it. At least that is my experience.

Neat. I have an assumption, but I not 100% sure yet. Can you please 
provide the windows driver .inf files (and the .sys files) somewhere (an 
URL would be the best thing).

Can you put the lsusb -v output of that device somewhere? (Not necessarily 
send it by Email, but just send the link).

BTW: no one needs to cry, if there is an answer you will get one (sooner 
(sometimes the good answer can take one week) or later), if no one knows 
the answer, you won't get one.
