Does the QM57 chipset has an SPI controller?? What about the SPI driver availability in Linux for Qm57 chipset??
You can find what hardware features are supported in the datasheet for this chipset:http://ark.intel.com/chipset.aspx?familyID=43185
Linux driver information might be easier to find at a web site devoted to Linux.
