Linux 2.6.10-rc1 changed PCI driver registration in a way which is not
backwards compatible and Host AP driver v0.2.5 does not have the needed
changes since it was released before 2.6.10 (well, 2.6.10 is not really
even released yet).

Both the current CVS snapshot of stable branch and the latest release
from development branch (0.3.2) have support for the changed PCI
functionality in Linux 2.6.10.
