"kaweth" usb ethernet driver in 2.4?

I'm wondering about the status of the "kaweth" Kawasaki LSI KL5KUSB100
USB to Ethernet Controller driver for 2.4. According to
http://www.hiru.aoba.yokohama.jp/%7eura/USB/usbether.html, this chipset
is used in the 3Com USB Network Adapter, Linksys USB10T, D-Link DSB-650,
SMC 2102USB, Netgear EA101, and a few other USB ethernet adapters.

The driver is included with the USB stuff for 2.2, but not in 2.4.

It also doesn't seem to work in 2.2. :) The original development of
this driver was going on at http://drivers.rd.ilan.net/kaweth/ but there
have been no updates for quite some time.

Donald Becker had a driver at one point as well, and there's still a
link at http://www.scyld.com/usb/ethernet.html, but the link is broken
now, and I don't have the code.

I have one of these beasts, and I'd like to get it working - I haven't
done any USB _or_ ethernet work for Linux, so it'll be an uphill climb
fro me. Anybody else have one, and have some time to collaborate? :)
I have some of the chipset documentation, too, FWIW.
