Bug#512546: Same problem on Dell Optiplex 760 with Intel Corporation 82567LM-3 Gigabit Network Connection [8086:10de] (rev 02)

Quoting Sebastiaan Couwenberg (sebastic@xs4all.nl):

Such improved support is exactly the purpose of Lenny'n'half, yes.

Really sad that the new line of Dell Optiplex desktops will not be
supported out-of-the-box by lenny. I think we can blame the damn habit
of those HW manufacturers to change their product line every 6 months.:-(

This is their responsibility. I personnally think that such backports
of kernel N+1 into kernal N add more mess in the kernel land than
solving problems, but apparently some people think differently.

We indeed don't have much to do with that bug report.

We could reassign it to the kernel with "please support <foo>" but we
already know this should be closed when the kernel team uploads
2.6.28. So, reassigning it to the kernel just adds more hassle to the
kernel team: think about closing that BR when uploading
2.6.28....without much benefit.

Any other opinions before I close the bug report?
