Something which is not clear for me is if the dma patch is also
applied to the above 2.6.32 ? Or is it not necessary anymore (for
whatever reason) from the performance point of view ?

And, BTW, is this patch in the stock squeeze kernel ? (If I understand
right, the 2.6.32 above is also for lenny.)

I've installed the 2.6.26 (dma one) from yesterday on my SS4000-E
(thanks, Martin!) where it runs well, but it's a lenny kernel in a
squeeze install.

I will eventually try 2.6.32-bpo, but I prefer a squeeze one if
