Latest Ubuntu generic kernel for 10.04 have this driver and probably
without firmware.

i didn't patch smapi. There are no problem with smapi.
i patched tp_acpi.c driver for x100e, because driver wasn't know x100e.
Driver patched by developer around ten days ago, but Ubuntu kernel
doesn't have patched version yet.
