At first, I thought that the severity was appropriate as this bug
doesn't break *all* systems, and the kernel is somewhat special in that
most bugs will affect "the whole system".
But I must admit that I was a bit surprised when 2.6.32-17 was uploaded
without a fix for this problem. It makes me wonder if the severity
shouldn't have been higher after all.... Just to be clear: This bug
does break all KVM based systems, making them completely unbootable, and
requiring console access to fix. I'm pretty sure there are plenty of
KVM based hosting solutions around where this will be a severe problem.
Is KVM a supported "hardware" platform i Debian? I would expect so. If
it is, then please raise the severity of this bug high enough to reflect
