This is going to cause some pretty bad press for Intel when the next set 
of distros ship which will be pretty soon. Fedora, Mandriva and Ubuntu 
all have releases coming up and if I'm not mistaken they will be 
shipping 2.6.28 or .29 kernels.

This really needs to be addressed guys :(

(who is still stuck on a .27 kernel and is feeling left out)
