Has worked properly here very well with whatever is in the debian
kernel, since 2.6.15 at least.

Well Mike, maybe very well for you not for many users and some kernel
developers[0] agreed. Btw, Greg wrote an article for lwn (major

read it there if you're subscribed. Really interesting content that shows the
current problems with the kernel implementation (up to 2.6.17) that should
be solved soon, since Linus came up with a interesting patch.
