this is what I get in binary/casper without the patch:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4991707 2012-08-12 18:37 initrd.img-3.0.0-16-generic
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 14750751 2012-08-12 18:37 initrd.img-3.2.0-29-generic
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 14757956 2012-08-12 18:37

-rw------- 1 root root 5010176 2012-08-12 18:37 vmlinuz-3.2.0-29-generic-pae
