The sid one was the right one to test. The sarge one has kernel/module
version skews. It's rather useless and I removed it. I will build a
new sarge image once the ~500MB remaining debs are uploaded.

Expected since the sarge image was from before the transition and
needs the 2.3.2.ds1-184.108.40.206.pure64 to upgrade cleanly.
