It will be easier with the kernel you compiled yourself. First of all,
download the patch from:

Then, move to the source directory of your kernel and apply
the patch:

$ cd ~/src/linux-2.6.32
$ patch -p2 < 

Adjust the path in each command to match your own setup. Then just
build and install the kernel:

$ make
$ sudo make modules_install
$ sudo make install

Or whatever method you use to install your self-compiled kernels. Then
reboot to kernel and test that the remote control works even
when _not_ passing any card parameter to the driver.

If you ever need to remove the patch, use:

$ cd ~/src/linux-2.6.32
$ patch -p2 -R < 

I hope my instructions are clear enough, if you have any problem, just
