Fwd: Bug#647563: laptop-mode-tools: incompatible with linux 3.0 and later

I'd like the release team's view on this request. I think this is a fair request. If there is agreement, I will work on this for Squeeze.

Package: laptop-mode-tools
Version: 1.55-1
Severity: important

laptop-mode-tools in squeeze has various tests for a kernel version that
begins with 2.6, and therefore operates incorrectly/partially on kernel 3.0
and later.

Please consider an update fixing this issue through stable-proposed-updates.
Using a 3.x kernel is quite important for several laptops.  Also, it would
cause problems for squeeze-and-a-half.
