Kernel 2.6.6 kernel heads up ! (Nvidia and Alcatel usb modem users)

Problemo !!!!!!!

The new kernel 2.6.6-pre* seems to be different.

The usb.c file no longer contains the code required to comment out to fix the alcatel usb adsl modem problem.

Any takers on a solution? I know it's not a stable kernel yet, but it will
be soon, and yet again *sigh* us alcatel users are going to get shafted.

I did notice another problem with the 2.6.6 series, you now have the option to select 4 or 8k kernel buffers. 4 kills the Nvidia driver, use 8. The newer kernels will soon be migrating totally to 4, and nvidia have announced that there is a new driver in the pipeline to address this issue.

evilone !!
