I would restore your original source and use the one from:

I googled about for a 2.6.5 patch to save me making one up and found that site. I bookmarked it and it looks like the guy is making patches for all new kernels.

My thanks to tyrant for his/her hard work

This seems like a long bit

I've got it going on my slack system too so if you've still got a problem just let me know.
