Hi Michael,

Many thanks for the patch! Let see if I can test on my Amiga somehow.

ARAnyM should work, too. You just need to add the attached patch to the
list of patches applied (compile tested on 5.16-rc2) on top of the
mainstream kernel source - as far as I remember, Debian applies any
number of patches, and there is a file in the kernel image source
package that describes which patches are needed for a given
architecture. Haven't built a Debian kernel package in many years, so
can't be more specific than that, sorry.

It looks the Debian Installer build process retrieves the kernel from the Debian repository itself, but I don't find any documentation reference to apply a patch to it, maybe it is just not possible so I have to build my own kernel and inject it in the d-i build process; but I don't know how to do that. Maybe someone highly familiar with Debian can shed a bit of light? Adrian? It would be ideal to try the patch with the nativehd initrd, as the first thing the Debian Installer does in that image is to bring the network up.

You'll have to build your own kernel image binary package with the patch included, and override the repository debian-installer uses for the kernel image. As I've said, my exposure to building debian-installer is minimal, and someone else (perhaps Adrian) would know a lot more about this process.
