SMP Linux System dgrp ver dgrp 1.7-1 Sound Off

I understand that there was a bug with the dgrp 1.6-1 driver on linux when running the smp kernel. Apparently, this has been fixed in driver version dgrp 1.7-1. I am looking to see how many people out there have experienced the problem and have had success with the new driver. We are in the midst of a system upgrade and this information would be very helpful to me. Sound off please.
