If you have a fix and Michael builds a kernel, I will be more than happy to
include it in the next boot-floppies build.
If you want somebody to fix it for you, you might have more luck if you ask
politely on the list, which was made for this kind of discussion, ie
Debian-68k is for discussing debian related stuff on m68k machines, this
is, as you describe it, a kernel problem and thus relevant for all
linux-m68k users out there, not only debian-68k.
PS I am still looking for people who update the quickinstall guides for
amiga/atari and mac. There was at least somebody working on mac, can you
submit it to the CVS, if you think its worth using? I will automatically
have the current document then in my next try. I think, if we don't get
updated docs for m68k, we can not release potato for m68k...
