Yes indeed. Look in

for a patch against later 2.0 kernels.

Warning: this patch hasn't been fully publicly released, but I have
had a fairly large number of people testing it so far. To date, the
only known problem is that it falls apart somewhat if you try to use
it on a device driver loaded dynamically via kerneld --- I'm not yet
sure just what's going wrong in that case.

Apart from that, I hope you find it useful. I'll make a more
widely-announced public release once I've got the problem cornered.
