I'm interested in fixing the issue for Lucid (10.04) and previous
releases. Do you know how I can tell if the Lucid kernel will work
with the 1.26.90 firmware? If it's not easy to tell by looking at the
source, would you or someone else be able to test Lucid (it's at the
alpha 3 stage, nearing beta right now) to determine if the 1.26.90
firmware will work?
I will work on providing 1.22.82 in karmic, though I'm not sure what
should be provided for jaunty. If no one suggests anything different,
I'll probably look at putting in 1.20.79 just to be safe.
