Hi Tom,

This issue was documented in the Intrepid Release Notes[1] so hopefully
some users can benefit from it's mention there and be directed to
installing the linux-backports-modules-intrepid package. Otherwise,
those who are involved with the triaging of these types of bug reports
can hopefully help direct bug reporters to try the package. Thanks.
