Digi NEO driver support is not available for 3.x kernels. However, there is an in-kernel driver module called jsm (developed by IBM) that may work instead. The in-kernel driver will not have Digi tools/utilities though, such as ditty, dpa, etc...

Looks like there is new life to be breathed into these boards with the newer kernel series with this work. It may be worth a try to use the newer kernel, though initial tests of the earlier kernel patches caused Linux to crash. Hopefully in the 4.x series this has been fixed.
