This kernel version breaks b44 support an Dell Vostro laptops and maybe

Arch Forum: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=886857

The reason and a solution is discussed here:

Maybe a small patch can be included into the Arch PKGBUILD, until
the kernel hackers have a working vanilla kernel again... ?
