I'll skim the changelogs in 2.6.3.x to see if there are any related

Basically, distribution support. Debian Squeeze will ship with 2.6.32,
as Ubuntu already did for their current LTS - and I really want Debian's
kernel to be as reliable and stable as possible (btw, that's why I
initally reported this as a debian bug, because at that time I wasn't
using vanilla kernels. Now that I know how git bisect works, it will
hopefully be easier for me to pinpoint regressions in the future).
Also, We do not really have enough hardware to test new upstream
releases thouroughly before going into production (e.g., we only have
one big tape library with one big disk pool, so no test if
tape-on-mptsas and aacraid work properly and stable in a newer upstream
