    Yes, it's clear to someone who's familiar with git but not to a noob
    like me. Where do I run this git? After it's finished what to do next?
    How many times do I have to compile kernels? Which kernels exactly?
    After booting a "bad" kernel, what then? etc... From reading the
    article, the guy has to compile 14!! times just to catch a problem
    between kernel 2.6.21 and 2.6.22. I guess in my case I'll have to
    compile a lot more than 14 times to catch something between kernel
    2.6.27 and 2.6.30 and honestly I don't have time for this right now.
    However, I did a diff between the pata_via driver of kernel 2.6.27 and
    2.6.30 and there have been changes to it but I'm not sure if they
    affect the cable detection...
