As of 2.6.21 it's in the mainline kernel, but...

Greg must of added the 8800 ID to the module. The computer is charging the 8800 fine.
...at 100mA, not 500mA (check your lsusb -v output). I was on the email CC from Greg, and the problem with adding the 8100+ to the module for proper detection is that usb-storage conflict (the devices with SD cards *always* present a USB Mass Storage interface, even if you've disabled it on your 8x00 device).

Last I heard (which was awhile ago) he was going to work with the usb-storage people (??) and try and figure something out. That module, though, *should* be working for the 8700 and older devices!

Linux Headquarters - Kernel v2.6.21 /drivers/usb/misc/berry_charge.c

Notice the #define BLACKBERRY 0x0001 -- it doesn't support our newer 0x0006/0x0004 SD-enabled devices. :-/
