[RDD] GPIO Driver Ubuntu 14.04

I had some run ins with this in 12.04 and sadly I don't have good news. 
I worked around the configure script kernel issues and then had to 
change some code calls to get it to work as some kernel calls were 
dropped and changed over the years.

Sadly even after all of this the closest I got was an installed module 
that although it never crashed, it didn't actually do anything.

My C skills are fairly weak so I didn't know where to turn after this.  
Would be interested to know if anyone had any progress in this area.

FYI there is also a difference between the PCIe and PCI card.  The 
driver is only for the PCI card.  Fred did explain that it was doable to 
swap to PCIe but again weak C skills meant it wasn't something I had 
time to pursue.

I ended up sticking with Debian 6 and isolating the machines from the 
rest of the network/internet.
