<removed old conversation to clean things up>

Hi David,

ok, so this is a bug that still exists in the current upstream code. So this
should be reported there. You can do that yourself or I can forward the patch on
your behalf.

What you also should do is to add a new bug (with "ubuntu-bug linux") because
the report you reference is about adding support for newer chipsets while the
problem seems to have existed before.

One question, for clarification: did you compile yourself a kernel to test
whether the results after the change are what you would expect? If no, we might
provide you a test kernel before proceeding. If yes, this can be documented in
the bug report.

When the patch has been accepted upstream, it can be picked up by upstream
stable maintainers and finally find its way back into the Ubuntu kernel. I know
its a long way. :) But it helps to make sure things get fixed for others too.
