I was unable to test the Saucy images and the latest mainline kernel, as they refuse to boot/install on the Amilo due to lack of PAE support.

This kernel does not support a non-PAE CPU.

I guess the only (unimportant) question remaining is how come I was able to boot -pae kernels on this very same device back in the pre-release times (3.2.0-[<23]) – perhaps those earlier kernels didn’t properly detect the lack of PAE?
The wireless now (with the current 3.2.0-52-generic #78-Ubuntu) seems to somehow work without wistron_btns.
I’m not sure how to deal with the tags & bug status in this case, so I’ll leave it to your discretion. If you have further ideas to test, I’ll be happy to provide, but closing this report (perhaps as ’Invalid’) is also fine by me.
