I'd prefer if your patches are in the linx-m68k CVS. Either way, I'll have
to build a new kernel-patch package before I build new kernel-images.
kernel-image is the time consuming part, when built on m68k, but for testing
I will cross-compile an image first.

Please do not break CT60 support. Or first board has been shipped and when
Michael returns in a week, I am sure he wants to install debian on it...
