Okay, I built such a kernel earlier - I'll reboot soon with it. [In
order to switch from 'm' to 'y', I had to rejigger a bunch of AGP /
DRM / Intel stuff from 'm' to 'y', but I eventually got it, by
following the dependency chain.]

As I mentioned in my original post, 2.6.32 from Sid works fine. I
haven't yet tried the one from experimental. If the above doesn't
work, I guess that can be next.
