thanks for the update.

so is this "broken" device already in the field? (i.e. can I buy it? how many of them)
from the description it seems not. ("future chromebooks")
--> how likely is it that the firmware of that device will be fixed that it can work with the regular driver?
Although I really like to see driver upstreamed, I also want to avoid maintenance hell for obscure hardware :/
