Oops; egg on my face. I just looked at that patch; it's ...
um ... a patch to the *documentation*, not a patch to the
driver like I thought.

But that's odd, because why would Debian include a patch to
the documentation but not to the driver itself? I'll have to
dig around a bit; I'd be surprised if the driver itself
weren't included in the Debian kernel distribution.

In any case, I got that patch file by doing an apt-get
source for my kernel -- i.e.,

apt-get source linux-image-$(uname -r)
