You mean atl1c, right?

No, I feel this is a step backwards.  With the new models released
after Lenny, I really feel that we should make things work in Squeeze
first before we start worrying about Lenny backports.  And even then, I
favour a whole kernel backport rather than trying to backport
individual modules from a newer kernel into an older one.  There are
just so many benefits to the new kernel that I don't feel nursing
2.6.26 along is a wise use of our resources.
