    Ah good, scared me for a bit there :)

    Which should handle this just fine. I suggest you file a bug against
    the debian package if this is not the case.

    Actually 073 is now out :)

    Anyway, no, I do not think that it will be required for 2.6.15, unless
    something is found really wrong with 071 and that kernel.

    072 is already availble in unstable.

    071 should be fine, as documented. Works for me here :)
