stable (hamm) and frozen (slink) don't officially support the 2.2 kernel,
and the recent changes to netbase have all been both after the freeze, and
mainly intended towards adding support for 2.2.

I can upload a netbase that works with slink and 2.2 any time, but atm I
don't have anywhere to upload it to.

In short: if you're running a 2.2 kernel, use potato (unstable), or wait
for slink to be updated.

See http://www.debian.org/~rcw/2.2/ for all the known bugs.
