Well, every kernel updates requires a new build of d-i and so is best
avoided if that's possible. However, I don't see how we can release
the current kernel when it has a known security issue (the "race
conditions in linux terminal subsystem", CAN-2004-0814). Also, I
couldn't find anything in the changelog about the ELF loader
vulnerabilities (see http://lwn.net/Articles/110486/).
How severe are those two issues?
