Dear diary,

   after trying the Linux kernel 2.5.52, I recognized the following problems:

      - modules are named .ko instead of .o, is there a need for new modutils ?
        Didn't find anything until now in the Changelogs.
        A `cp find /lib/modules/2.5.52/kernel -name \*.o /lib/mo*/2.5.52/`
        let's RR module-init utils load the modules again.
      - inserting of orinoco_cs freezes the system [automaticly by cardmgr]
      - speedstep.o still does not support all P3s ?
   cpufreq: Intel(R) SpeedStep(TM) for this chipset not (yet) available.
         Do you need some more informations about this chip?

      - apm doesn't recognize when I close my notebook nor does it
        recognize Fn+F4 [suspend button]; Calling apm -s still does work
      - inserting apm.o causes kernel to printout the following:
