Nice. Thanks much!

It would be nice to get this fixed in the 2.6.32.y series, too. Would
you be able to test the patch from <http://bugs.debian.org/655353#10>?
It works like this:

0. Prerequisites:

apt-get install git build-essential

1. Grab a copy of the stable kernel series:

git clone -o stable
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git
linux
cd linux

Or, if you already have a clone of the kernel repository:

cd linux
git remote add -f stable
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git

2. Check out the 2.6.32.y series:

git checkout stable/linux-2.6.32.y
cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) .config; # use current configuration
make localmodconfig; # optional: minimize configuration
make; # optionally with -j<num> for parallel build
fakeroot -u make deb-pkg
dpkg -i ../<name of package>
reboot

Hopefully it reproduces the problem.

3. Apply and test patch:

git apply --index thepatch
make; # maybe with -j4
fakeroot -u make deb-pkg
dpkg -i ../<name of package>
reboot

If it works, we can apply the patch in squeeze and send the patch to
Greg for application to upstream 2.6.32.y kernels, so everyone
benefits.

If you have any questions, just ask.

Jonathan
