ARM installer images for etch (4.0) currently broken

This is just a note to inform people that the netboot installer images
on ARM for etch (Debian 4.0) are currently broken.

When Debian 4.0 (etch) got updated a few days ago for its first point
release (4.0r1), the kernel images got updated on all architectures.
Unfortunately, the package that points to the latest kernel image did
not get updated on ARM, which means that the installer tries to
install the old kernel image (which is no longer available) and fails.

This will be fixed in the next point release (4.0r2).  There is no
plan yet as to when this will happen but hopefully soon because there
was another problem with r1 that needs to be addressed.

Note that this problem does not affect existing users of Debian on
ARM, but only new installations.  I will write another note when 4.0r2
is out and new installations are possible again.

Apologies for this inconvenience.

Martin Michlmayr
