Good God! Why would you want to backport any OLPC kernel module to 2.4?
I'm fairly certain you'd be maintaining it outside the normal circles,
because I doubt that Marcelo would be taking 2.4 patches to libertas
git; I'd certainly recommend against taking them. 2.4 is a dead-end,
and not just for OLPC...
