AFAIK not yet.  It's a very small patch, but I failed when tried
to port it to 2.6 a few months back, as things have changed
there (bdflush removed, something else appeared, ...).  Well,
seems that it has been integrated into vanilla 2.4 tree.  No URL
right now.  Have a look around, you will find it.

Lemme introduce myself briefly.  I'm a happy owner of a Sony Vaio
laptop.  The only reason you see me around here is that I'm
developing a laptop framework for the Fedora Project, so
gathering info.
