This has nothing to do with CPU detection, but because 2.4.26 made it into
testing right after beta4, 2.4.24 got removed because it was no longer
building from source in unstable.

Hence the default behavior of pick_kernel ensues, which chooses the first
kernel available. Sadly, this default behavior doesn't play nice with
subarchitectures.

I told Joey earlier that a base-installer with that bug fixed should get
uploaded for a beta4 update, which I'm not sure is going to happen..
