I spoke to Frederik Schueler about this problem, and he
told me that it was a toolchain problem in sid.
We are actually planning to remove kernel-source-2.6.8 from
sid in the near future. So could you please either use
linux-source-2.6.12 from sid, or compile on sarge.
In any case, its pretty difficult to fix this problem in
sid (or so I have been told), and the problem should not
manifest in sarge, so I am going to tag it sid and wontfix.
Hopefully others with the same problem will see this.
