The next release of Debian (6.0, code name Squeeze) will be based
on 2.6.32. Please test the current 2.6.32 from unstable/testing.
The patch by Pavel Roskin you mentioned has been merged in the mean
time and there's been more work on that driver, so we should evaluate
the current status.
The 2.6.32 kernel is available from packages.debian.org and can
be installed in both Debian stable, testing and unstable
