Many thanks for the quick reply. With a 2.6.27 kernel (which is unfortunately
not in the upcoming Debian lenny release) the timeouts went away and the
stick worked flawless.
From you commit comments, I get the impression that applying the patch to a
2.6.26 kernel should be pretty save. Do you think the patch can break
anything when applied to a 2.6.26 kernel, is the risk of unexpected side
effects very low?
