I'm sorry, but what "VIA fixes" are we referring to?

My hardware:
- VIA Apollo Pro 133A - VIA VT82C686A South, VIA VT82C693A North

The only problem I have ever had with my system had to do with the

onboard sound (via82cxxx_audio driver specifically), and Mr. Jeff
Garzik promptly issued a patch which corrected my problem.

I'm currently running linux kernel 2.4.8 with no problems whatsoever.
