I was pretty sure that the module loader would be broken. I need an arm
hacker to go through the arm-specific patches in debian/held-patches an
re-merge them with 4.1.0.
Blast, yes, I forgot the module loader.
From a quick glance at the code, you want to apply
600_arm_module_loader_and_port_IO.diff. A lot of the elfloader.c hunks will
fail but I think they are no longer required. You also need at least the
xf86sym.c part of 600a.diff; again one hunk will fail and can be ignored.
So, where do I get this patch? It doesn't come with the 4.1.0-6 source;
I presume it's against 4.0.2-*?
