Someone must do the following work:
1. Compile driver with some fixes just for you.
2. Package it for particular distribution - usually including distribution-specific patches
3. Send this binary to you and explain how to use it
4. Repeat the process starting from 1.
WAAAY to much work to do this for free. There are companies which will offer this level of support - but usually it's quite expensive. You should pay one way or another: either by buying expensive support contract or wasting sizable amount of time playing with HEAD drivers...
It's still better then situation in Windows world where you can only submit bugreport and hope that someone sometime will read it and you'll get your fix half-year later...
