I guess you talk about:

I had a look at v3 at the patch.
It still does not contain documentation.

Since I do not have the hardware, I cannot tell whether the driver works.
For me, the important missing bit is the documentation.

You can help getting this driver included into LCDproc:
Write the documentation.
It should be fairly easy if you
- have the hardware
- are a maintainer in Fedora
