Recently I have upgraded from Drake to Edgy. My machine has AMD64 (Asus 
A6B004-K). I noticed that recent kernel 2.6.17-10-generic is not 
dedicated only to x86_64 although it is for x86/x86_64, or is it?

Binary blobs stopped working (nVidia, Broadcom WiFi BCM4318) which can 
be understandable. But the magic Fn+F2 button for turning on/off WiFi 
card also stopped working with the newer kernel. ACPI is working - 
tested with /proc/acpi/asus/mled diod turned on/off.

For temporal solution I decided to still use  2.6.15-27-amd64-generic, 
everything works fine.
