If there are no objections from other members of the kernel team
I can have this ready today or tomorrow. (Likely tomorrow as

I can make i386 kernel-images available at the same time as the
kernel-source. I don't handle other architectures so I can't speak for

Including this bug, I am only aware of 3 bugs against
kernel-source-2.4.26 of particular concern.
(that does not mean I won't look into the other bugs against
the package, just that they are not a priority)
253787 (this bug): Fix pending as per this discussion.
257120 (ipsec): Fix in SVN already
257001 (m68k): m68k is known to be higly problematic on 2.4
After some discussion on debian-kernel I plan
to mark it as wontfix.
If you are aware of other problems please send them to debian-kernel.
I will endevour to look into them ASAP.
