I've only tried on sid - but I haven't bothered trying to upgrade from
the 2.6.30 kernel yet.
What problem did you hit?

That would be great.
All I did in my repo was to hack the Ubuntu jaunty PPA-packages enough
for it to work for me, then I lost momentum.
The ugliest part (apart from the binary blobbiness), as far as I
remember, is the libdrm2 vs. libdrm-poulsbo1 thing, where both packages
provide the same files - which I haven't figured out how to fix
correctly (I simply used force-overwrite and did some symlinks by hand.)
