Well, since I can't seem to reproduce the problems I had, and since it's
possible that it wasn't the revert as much as just the reboot itself that
cleared things up for me, right now I can no longer check one way or the
other.

Earlier, it looked like just reverting that commit ended up fixing things,
which made me very unhappy, since:

"older" means a few years old. It's a compaq/hp 2510p that I've bug out in
preparation for late-rc 2.6.30 testing to see that everything works fine.

And the kernel I'm using is top-of-git, so that fix was there.

Which was obviously exactly why I was so unhappy about this, since the
revert seemed to fix problems for me _despite_ the fix.

But now that I can't re-create it, I must assume that it was some other
random thing unrelated to the revert.
