14 Well, the fix is in the line for 2.6.36 IIRC, so wouldn't be in an
15 2.6.35 kernel.
17 That said, the problem supposedly being fixed goes back well before
18 2.6.34, so if that kernel works, it suggests that it is a different
19 issue you are hitting. However... If there was a FF update, that could
20 be triggering the bug, as FF3.5+ are pretty stinky for I/O levels.
