I also thought about that, but as specifications for this chip were
(so, they are quite incomplete) I didn't find the way to disable
handling by chip :-( Besides of that, I think chip handling has the
advantage of being
faster, as it does not put any load on CPU/driver.

JM> Thanks! I applied the changes apart from 1 and 5 which already done.

Ok, thank you!
