This is not acceptable to me.  The -386 flavour in general must
support math emulation.  Now since the previous debian-installer
leader expressed his wish to keep the normal flavour identical to
the one used on debian-installer, it would not be possible to disable
math emulation.

Of course if the thinking is now that you do want a different kernel,
then I'd be happy to customise it the way you want.
