No problem. According to your dmesg logs, kernel 2.6.38 was working for
you, and 3.2.0 isn't.

First, clone the mainline Linux git:

  git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux
  cd linux

Test again that 2.6.38 is working:

  git checkout v2.6.38
  compile + test

test again that 3.2.0 is not working:

  git checkout v3.2
  compile and test

Then do the bisect:

  git bisect start
  git bisect good v2.6.38
  git bisect bad v3.2

Compile and test each step the bisect drops you to, and then call either
"git bisect good" or "git bisect bad". If a step cannot be compiled or
tested, call "git bisect skip".

If all goes well, you will be told which commit is the first one that
does not work anymore.
