Oh, it will be fixed in Debian alright.  I am just waiting the issue to
settle a bit to file the bug reports, or maybe even send in the Debian
patches myself (note that I am not responsible for the code in question,
so I am not wearing a brown paperbag at this time).  Even if I didn't do
it, there are several other Debian Developers reading LKML that could do
it (provided they noticed this specific thread and are aware of the
situation) :p

I can even push for the fixes to be accepted into the stable and
oldstable branches of Debian, but that can take anything from a few
weeks to several months, due to the way our stable releases work.  But
it would eventually happen.

Whether such fixes will ever make it to LTS branches, especially
Ubuntu's, *that* I don't know.
