It seems we had some initial confusion about which kernel version you
were going to work on.  You offered to provide patches 'against the
current wheezy kernel', which at the time (5th August) was 2.6.39-3.
However the current version in sid/unstable was already 3.0.0-1, and
this was due to move into wheezy/testing within a few days.  I think I
must have assumed that you meant 3.0.0-1, but I failed to specify that
in my follow-up.

I apologise for wasting your time on the backport.  If you ever want to
backport for Debian again, we should agree exactly which kernel version
is meant as the baseline.
