I used my wifi usb dongle, 0bda:8176 RTL8188CUS, successfully on a raspberry pi with raspbian (kernel 3.6.11+ compiled for arm). now I want to have wifi on my dell desktop and the same dongle but it comes out to suffer from this driver bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1030858.

my question is which distros (or which kernel versions) have the bug fixed and are usable so that I can use them with my desktop
