The bugs were discussed already.
One was exposed by disabling EARLY_PRINTK (since fixed by Geert but
disabling EARLY_PRINTK is moot anyway), another was mistakenly thought to
be a multiarch kernel bug but was actually an '030 issue (the confusion
was caused by EARLY_PRINTK being disabled; again, moot).
There was another bug (mac only) which was caused by enabling EARLY_PRINTK
but this was fixed both in -stable and in 3.10 (i.e. before EARLY_PRINTK
got disabled by default, so again it's moot).
Anyway, my repeating this stuff is just wasting bandwidth. Those who can
fix Debian kernel issues know how to do so by now. Likewise those of us
who use small, upstream, single-platform kernels. I'm done.
