Hmm, that's not good to hear, given the outcome of 294867: it appears that
the de4x5 module should be removed from the kernel build altogether.  Not
before sarge of course, but hotplug has already been changed to always use
the tulip module instead -- this could make for some irritating bugs if d-i
uses a different module than the one hotplug loads for stage 2, no?
