Sorry, I didn't get this. I've downgraded the compiler for the

This is wrong; modules built for '3.1.0-1-486' in testing/unstable will
not be loadable in a backported kernel due to the compiler version
change. (I don't believe that gcc 4.4 and 4.6 are at all incompatible,
but the module loader does check this.)
Hmm... I think it used to, but I don't see any sign that it does any
more. But let's not test this.
In general you won't have plain testing-packages if you just use
stable+stable-backports. So when compiling the 3.1.8-modules with the
same stable gcc (4.4) there is no gcc version mismatch within
stable+stable-backports (there is no gcc 4.6...)
So every additonal kernel module (besides those packaged inside
linux-image) need to be backported with the same gcc version.
Forgive me, if I got that completly wrong.
Anyway, are there any news in the backport upload process? I still use
my own packages, but on the server I feel more comfortable with an
"official" version where more users may file bugs against.
Thanks for your hard work.
