I have attached the patch for you to this bug report. Download it and save it
a .patch file.

If you are using a kernel that you checked out from git, you can use 
'git am name_of_the_patch.patch'

If you are using stock kernel that came with your distribution (Ubuntu ?) then
go to the top of your kernel source directory (you must have it installed
first) and apply the patch as 'patch -p1 name_of_the_patch.patch'

After that you have to recompile and reinstall your kernel (look at this page
for Ubuntu-specific instructions

The patch is meant for the latest kernel in Git repository, but I have just
tried it on 2.6.39 kernel (which I understand is what you are using) and it
applies fine.
