Re: kernel-image packages for alpha in need of testing

I've believe that I've been bitten by this problem (Bug #243992), so I'm
looking forward to finding out if this fixes me up. Since my alpha is
currently sans-OS, I can't test out the kernel packages themselves, I'll
be waiting for the d-i images based on this kernel.  Another added bonus
for me is that the 2.4.26-2 kernels should include the fix to be able to
install onto a DAC960 controller (where my disks are), and hopefully fix
the problem I was having with my 4-port NIC (the PCI bug), thus solving
all my d-i alpha woes in one stroke.

As a random aside, what are the chances of the 2.4.26-2 (or greater)
kernel being used in d-i before the release?  If they're not very good,
do you think it would be possible to get the patch that Herbert applied
to 2.4.26-2 (Bug #244585) backported to the version which will be used?
It'd be nice to finally be able to install onto the Mylex controller...
