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

    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.
