At least, I want to provide it with squeeze.and hope kernel-package would enable patch support again... ;)I won't speak for Manoj here, but I feel we should think about other ways to provide those patches.One way could be simply to provide ensure those patches in some git tree, that users can easily fetch and merge before running make-kpkg.
