I actually have build a first amd64 kernel images set, which is in
fact based on debians kernel-source and kernel-patch-debian.
The source pacakge actually creates 3 flavours: a generic x86_64 kernel
for DI, k8 and k8-smp.
At present state a kernel-patch-amd64 would only be needed if 2.6.7
takes ways too long to release, considering the lots of fixes in the
BK snapshots. I will look more closely into this when I finished working
on the D-I parts.
