Now that it is clear which kernels are defective, what should one do with 
defective kernel on both i386 Debian etch and amd64 Debian etch? The list of 
Debian packages

Does that tarbal require a kernel compilation? I can easily imagine: Yes. What 
does mean "the vendor" in such list? How long it will take until > 
kernels become available as deb packages for etch?

I can also imagine that a machine used normally detached from internet, and 
only connected there for
#aptitude update (upgrade)
with only Debian official on sources.list, as for a machine used for 
computation, there is no problem of kernel vulnerability. True?
