This driver is not so new... We decided that it's better to first test the
address 24 to avoid these spurious detections; this is not implemented in
the driver version that you mention. I looked for an updated driver from
Don and even in 0.99Rb I couldn't find this change. So you'll have to use
the driver that is distributed with the kernel; the driver in 2.2.19,
2.4.3 and newer kernels has this code.
