Dear Santiago and dear LTS team,

I have backported the patch to squeeze. The debdiff is attached for

As I mentioned in the bug thread opened by the Security Team [1], I have
only verified that it builds (amd64 and i386 chroots), but I am not able
to test it due to the need for hardware capable of running with squeeze
very old drivers, which I do not possess.

I have however verified that the wheezy version works, and given that
it's the same upstream release (4.1) I am reasonably confident that it
should be fine.

In the aforementioned thread [1] I have asked the Security Team whether
this upload should go through security.debian.org or through the updates
process instead, so I will wait for an answer before I start on the LTS
workflow you mentioned.

Thank you!

Kind regards,
Luca Boccassi
