The PPA approach is best.  We're aware that there is stuff in 2.6.33
that may require backporting onto 2.6.32 and we're currently trying to
figure out how to handle it.  So for now, if people just verify that
booting the mainline kernel solves it will be enough.  I think Intel can
give us guidance on what to backport so no need to have bug reporters
use up their time bisecting on this issue.

Thanks for raising the issue though.
