How new is newer?

There have been some interesting via-rhine fixes upstream recently, so
if you get a chance to try 3.3-rc1 or newer, that would be interesting.

(It works like this:

 1. Get tools:
	apt-get install git build-essential

 2. Get a recent kernel:

	git clone \
	cd linux

    Or, if you already have a git clone of the kernel:

	cd linux
	git fetch origin
	git checkuot origin/master

 3. Configure it:

	cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) .config; # stock configuration
	make localmodconfig; # optional: minimize configuration

 4. Build and install it, test:

	make deb-pkg; # optionally with -j<n> for parallel build
	dpkg -i ../<name of package>
