The commit that introduced the problem went into Linus' tree after
2.6.27, so it's not a regression from 2.6.26. In other words, 2.6.27
doesn't have the problem. It's a firmware bug in some old firmware
versions that got triggered by the kernel change, not a kernel bug per
se.

The commit has been reverted in Linus' tree now, so there isn't a
regression from 2.6.27 any more.

Paul.
