The d-i .udeb packages remain a mess, and the out-of-tree modules need some
work yet. But basically, thanks to the excellent work of the kernel team, it
should be much less of an issue than it was for sarge, altough cooperation
from other teams is needed to go to end of the process, cooperation that has
mostly been rejected violently in the past though.
