The real question (IMHO) is probably whether it would be possible to get
newer kernels into volatile. I'd guess "probably not", given that stuff like
udev tends to break every other release, but it's a tempting thought -- the
sarge machine here seems to run miles better with a 2.6.14 backport (yay for
backports.org) than it ever did with 2.6.8 (which seems to have a really
really unstable USB layer).
