Ok, I tried applying these patches, but they didn't apply. I tried
digging the patches out of the suse kernel tree, but they didn't seem to
include all of the needed ones here.

So, I'm going to drop this patch from the 3.0.8 release, can someone
please send me the needed patches, backported to 3.0, so that I know
they are working properly?

thanks,
