I would highly recommend you engage the Linux community https://www.linux.com/community, for issues with the Linux based drivers. There is a lot of expertise in the community for working with issues like you are experiencing.
Ok i will look around a bit more in the linux community. I find it funny i never noticed there was a linux forum, i knew there was a ubuntu one(and a few other distros). I had mainly been sticking to the linux and ubuntu irc channels, so i will see where this takes me.
