Great - have done so; I've submitted two patches for the master branch
to support this activity; one to workaround long UNIX socket path
limitations which where causing test failures in the python code when
building in sbuild (there was a similar problem a while back in the C
code) and one to extend the range of supported kernels to include 3.8.

I also cherry picked commit 2520f4528742decf78a8b375f5389b50977f5e4b
to support the new header file layout for kernels >= 3.7.

I've done some basic testing of this version on the 3.8 kernel in
Ubuntu raring and things looks OK.

Acknowledged - never had any intent todo this.

Thanks for the guidance - much appreciated.
