Indeed, I've cloned this repository to check if the Fedora patches were merged.
It seems that it is still maintained, but not on regular basis.

I think the two patches from Debian needs further testing...
Karoly can you review those patches ?

In the meantime, I'll try to have some time next week to test this package with
our VWware image at work.
