A quick report on my experience with kernel 2.6.32-26:

First, installing this kernel version appeared to overwrite the Realtek-supplied driver (see #54 above, second-to-last paragraph), but the driver supplied with the kernel suffered from the same flaws as the driver supplied with 2.6.32-25. This was fixed by uninstalling and then reinstalling the package created with checkinstall, but the Realtek-supplied driver didn't work as well with kernel -26 as it did with -25: Didn't detect as many networks, signal not as strong, system freezes. I just set grub to boot to -25 by default, and this seems to fix the problems.
