Just testing with 2.6.32 rc6 now. For whatever reason (kernel, Xorg, Nvidia-driver ?) I have to boot now mostly twice.
On first boot pretty often Xorg doesn't start or dies. On an reboot it seems to be ok until next day.

Just happened to get my daughters HP615 in my hands, upraded it and tried the newer kernels (2.6.32-rc6-dmz1 +2) on it.
While the previous problems with acpi seem to have gone mostly and the new broadcom 4312 chip is now covered by b43-module I have found a new "showstopper". When booting up kdm seems to die after a while or doesnt'T really come up.
After a while you are back on a text-console. Starting kdm manually via /etc/init.d/kdm restart however brings up the kdm-screen and from then on working in graphical mode is possible.
StartX also works.
This might be caused by not too god teamwork between the kernel and the ati-driver (9.10) as this behaviour doesn't occur with the parallel installed kernel 2.6.29-4.

Just visited your site (www.liquorix.net/debian etc) to grab me your newest 2.6.32-rc-kernel and found its look a little strange currently. Looks like you changed font and colours and the newer font is not a monospaced font any more.

Have you heard any news on nsf-support lately ? It is still mentioned to not being supported by the kernel on bootup.

Read this -> bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=554508

It's a bug in the nfs-kernel-server init scripts.

EDIT: This bug report also has some drop in replacement code to check for nfs -> bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=550153
