Public bug reported:

The 2.6.22 kernel has countless improvements for laptop users - tickless
operation, the ability to use PowerTOP to help reduce power usage, and
improvements in suspend-to-RAM support.  Additionally, for Mac-Intel
users, it integrates many more patches than are included in 2.6.20 as
bundled with Feisty.  As a MacBook user, I basically find use of the
2.6.22 kernel a necessity for proper use of my laptop in Linux, and
currently end up having to compile my kernel from source or attempting
to use Gutsy (or Gutsy repos on Feisty for the kernel).  In fact, this
is currently recommended on the MacBook wiki to resolve issues with
certain MacBooks (granted, I in part edited it, but no one has yet to
propose a better solution).  Please backport the 2.6.22 kernel and
related auxiliary packages (linux-restricted-modules, linux-headers, et
al) from Gutsy to Feisty.
