Actually, quite a few modules packages are being built for the
vserver and xen flavours :
Unless I missed some, I think this concerns four source packages.
I'm not sure if it would be possible to binNMU / force rebuild of

and loop-aes by myself, I think we could react quickly and rebuild
them via normal sourceful uploads as well.
