Hey Mario,

Thanks for the hint. I checked the 2.6.25 kernel changelog, and indeed,
you seem to be right.

Given that squeeze is shipped with linux kernel 2.6.32, and even lenny
has 2.6.26 already, I'll kick the checks for kernel versions completely
and simply assume that the system is running a kernel > 2.6.25.
