For some reason the src rpm is missing one of the tarballs (x86_64) as
well. All very strange.

The only reason I noticed it today was that I have a newish laptop that
needed the driver, so wound up branching and building locally for my
SLED 11 SP2 system.

Might be time for a bug to be raised.....
