[ list of patches needed ]

I just took the time the other day to check some of the patches I
produced some time ago for the N770 and file bug reports where
relevant, not many, but as Riku said we were using really outdated
versions of packages.

#407187: apt: use dpkg-architecture to get host architecture
#407191: debianutils: armel and crosscompilation problems
#407192: dosfstools: uses obsolete dpkg argument
#407196: openssl: please add armel support

The others have better versions in your diff dir. Also saw libaio
there, and just uploaded a new package now. And qemu has the arches
added now in svn as well.

Probably debtakeover could solve this, but I'd have to update it to
support sarge (urgh!) and etch systems first...
