I'm really not comfortable adding a new Intel bbdev driver,
while the turbo sw driver cannot be freely compiled.
I know some work is in progress in Intel to fix this compilation issue,
and I am interested in checking it before proceeding with a new driver.

Is it possible to build this driver with gcc?
We cannot accept any maintenance operation if icc is required.
