Hello,

we have a customer that is planning to source new hardware and they are
looking at the Lenovo x201. They need 3G connectivity and run into
trouble with the 3G (WWAN) connection. It seems a 'special' firmware and
loader is needed:

There's also this kernel patch:

Is there any chances to get these changes into the Lucid kernel? Or
should they continue to look for another laptop?

Regards,
Torsten
