indeed 2.6.24 Debian deviates only slightly from upstream,
some added patches, GPL enforcement, but we always consider driver
backports to our stable kernel and have a history to do such.
also joss is not a member of the etch+half pushing teams
aka the debian kernel, installer and security teams.
so be assured that your latest driver landed.
i haven't heard yet from you May that you would test our
tomorrows snapshot sid builds next week?
bon weekend again
