Default Bug#498205: perhaps a patch already in bugzilla.kernel.org

Hi,

I talk about this bug with Samuel Thibault (involved in braille
support). His internet connection is not good for now but he think
it can be related to http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11242
Perhaps the proposed patch can also solve this bug.

Regards,
Vincent

It's practically the exact same issue, that patch should fix this aswell.

So I forward this info to the bug report. I've just made a link
between this bug and what Sam is working on. But I'm not at all
involved in maintaining the Debian kernel package ;-)
