    Hm, no fix in .33? I'm not entirely confident on .35.2 either, it came out way too fast (as did .35.1).

      He updated the article. It didn't say that originally.

            Yeah, it's missing three commits. The missing patches are in .35.3-rc1.

              Question: We I get a backported 2.6.34/2.6.35 kernel for Lucid? Don't want to reinstall OS in a year
              Unknown bug is a different situation then known security bugs unfixed for months. The same about design, you won't affect Linux by simply plugging USB drive.
