The problem is that I applied the eSATA patch in version 2.6.32-10,
the "Big Bang" release, which broke a lot of things. I believe things
have stabilized quite a bit in the meantime, though.
I just aked on IRC and was told that the latest blocker was #572618,
which was fixed in the kernel upload done yesterday. So hopefully the
kernel will move to squeeze soon and then we can update the installer.
