They indeed have, and probably not insignificant.

ftp://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/su...elh/SUSE-10.3/ (and
.../SRPMS/) contains ch341-2.6.23.99rc7-1593.{i586,x86_64,src}.rpm for
2.6.23(.17) (and such kernel is available through this repository).
Maybe it helps though you said you have 10.2.

Well yes it's SUSE10.2 with 2.6.18. I know the '-mm' ch341 patch was
applied to 2.6.23 which already had the data structure changes.. The
problem for me is I have a bunch of softwares that require kernel
modules to work (fpga stuff, X11, etc..), it's a pain to rebuild every
other modules if I could only get ch341 to work with 2.6.18 kernel.
