I saw this:
      Code:

staging-hv-fixed-the-value-of-the-64bit-hole-inside-ring-buffer

in the kernel changelog. I am not sure if both the issues are fixed in slh kernels. It would be good some confirmation from slh, preferably in News. This is certainly important and been around for a while.

You can be almost sure, that slh's kernel are usually just hours behind the ones from kernel.org (and sometime they are even beyond them Wink ). So if there is a fix/patch, it is already in the aptosid-kernel.
