I have to create a new kernel-patch-2.4.27-m68k package, since the old one
does not apply cleanly anymore to the new kernel-source in unstable. Do you
want me to include this patch in the -patch package? The README says with
this patch a real Atari will not work anymore, so I would not enable it. You
would just have to uncomment one line in the patch-list to enable it.
