No but it will likely show up on

Please be patient. The stable policy is to not backport fixes that are not
upstream in the current development version.

ie: it needs to reach 2.6.35-rcX before beeing merged in .34 and .33

In fact here is the complete path of the patch: bug report, trial fix posted
waiting for test, test, post on LKML, review, merge on the -tip tree (that
handles maintainance of x86, amongst lots of other things), then merge on Linus
tree (the true upstream one), then backport on stable trees, then distros ship
one of these new stable trees.

Each of these steps have their own latency properties. Fortunately, when it's
about a regression fix, the path between patch posting and upstream merge is
quite fast. Now the rest depends. The stable trees have their own frequency of
releases. And the end depends on your distro.

It has been merged few days ago in 2.6.35-rc4, so it will certainly be in and
