Since this driver is reverse engineered, the "attach" code path may be
not safe enough for it to go into 'kernel'. I think loading it as
module is the safest way. And (mini)PCIe parts (4311/4312, newer
amd64 based Dell laptops use them) probably do not work yet (missing
small fraction of initialization code).
