What would you call proper testing? I promise to build the kernel
images on two architectures I have access to (i386 and amd64), and test
the images on the limited set of machines I have (3). If the NMU is
uploaded to people.d.o, perhaps people with access to other hardware
can test it (though I am no, perhaps, the best candidate to create the
NMU, since Ben Hutchings has really been doing some heavy lifting with
If an NMU of the kernel package is acceptable, in absence of the
kernel-team themselves accepting the patches and doing an MU, then
perhaps the issue has been overblown.
My impression had been that the kernel image packages were
deemed too important to NMU, especially given their impact on the
installer. I'd be happy to be proved wrong.
