Looking at the driver and your fix, this was indeed missing.
Documentation (manpage) was present, but the addvar() call was missing.
I've just fixed it (trunk r3382), and bumped the driver version to 1.06.

Is this driver worth improving?

As long as there is a user of the device / driver, there is an interest in
The rest is due to either a lack of developer(s), or knowledges from the
users to qualify a bug and contribute a patch.
