No. The current driver for the BF-888s is "out of order".

Yes. I just submitted a patch to "fix" the BF-888s driver. The same driver
should work for the BF-666(s).

I don't know what the difference between them is but before purchasing the
BF-666, you might also look at the BF-888s. You can pick them up for close
to the same price.
