It is ugly few hour hack driver which I did when I tried to order Intel 
ce6230 based stick but got E3C ec168 one.
Anyhow, it seems to work with 8 MHz bandwidth. I think you have 6 or 7 
MHz? It is rather easy to add 6 and 7 too, just take usb-sniff and look 
registers programmed differently.
Are you using 6 or 7 MHz?
