I am in a similar situation.  We are building a board based upon a Bluetechnix
core module, with some custom hardware in between us and the GP2Lynx to give me
memory mapped access to its registers.

I have done some investigating and looking over the driver and I don't think the
porting should be that difficult.  Have you had any luck porting the driver?
