I am not sure if I completely get that. Which patches exactly, what
needs to get patched by them? The mol-source package only, or is there
deeper stuff in the kernel that needs to get patched, too? Please notice
that <http://bugs.debian.org/460667> was approved and is available
already available through unstable.

See above, was that all that was missing here?

The handle_mm_fault patch seems to be what was fixed in #460667 so I am
planing to give the rest of the patches a try against mol-source. If it
compiles for me and works I plan to do an NMU to fix this later today. I
have set such a short time schedule because I got notified about a round
of updated kernel images and thus also modules packages that will happen
within the next day and if we want to get this in we would need to have
it in shape when the rebuild of the modules packages happen.
See this as information about my plans, keep me updated with objections
to it or your own findings along these lines, I'm going to check this
bugreport regularly for the time being.
So long, and thanks for all the digging around so far.
