Sorry for the fuss --- I know you mentioned having tested similar
patches already. Still it would be useful to have confirmation that
the form[*] of the patches applied upstream works, so they can be
cherry-picked to the stable 2.6.32.y tree.
I can't test it myself (except for confirming that the patch has no
adverse effect on machines that don't need it) since I have a PSC16U
which is not affected. The only BIOS version I know of for it online
is 1.70 (too new).
If you no longer have access to the hardware or something, that's
fine, but please let us know so we can act accordingly.
