It contains both drivers, but I think we'll change the driver from
qlogicisp to qla1280 with the next initrd-tools upload.

I did not download your kernel-image, but in your description you wrote that qlogicisp is removed, and support for 1020/1040 in qla1280 activated. So updating should fail with "qlogicisp - module not found" when running mkinitrd during package installation.

For mkinitrd I would suggest to insert something like:
* try "qlogicisp"
* if package not found in installed kernel -> activate "qla1280"

This works for all kernels (2.4 and 2.6). But then you have to definitely disable qlogicisp.
