In fact I'm using the code from kernel org most of the time, because of the
exact same reason. Except stripping off a lot of code you don't need you
can optimize (fine tune) specifically for the machine you are using.
But back to the topic. The 2.6.30 line was really buggy :-) at least for me.
But this (126.96.36.199) seems to be useful.
I'm using it on a notebook Dell D520 (lenny).
