I'm in the process to buy a new gamepad, and I'd like to know if anybody has tried the new dual shock 3 in Linux, or at least the PS3's sisaxis.

Does it work well (digital input, analog & rumble)?

I couldn't find any information on google, I just know that it works in Windows with the appropriate drivers.

Since people have PS3 and use them in Linux, could you please try it in a recent Linux distribution (or at least with a recent kernel)?
