Adding new features to the kernel in stable besides closing security
bugs is not an option for Debian stable.
Apart from that, it's very questionable if there will ever be another
update to the current stable Debian release. Hence, you must not
depend on it actually happening.
Besides that, it's still not a guarantee that our 80386 users will
install the kernel prior to updating to sarge.
And just to add more annoyances, we already have the problem with
kernel-image-2.4.18 != kernel-image-2.4.18-1 for Debian stable and
proposed-upgrades. Where did you want to apply the i486 emulation?
