Currently this package (the udeb fdisk-udeb) is together with glibc
(which was decided to leave as-is) the only one out-of-sync. I assume
that at this stage, this should be left like it is now? On sarge r1
rebuild of the installer, this new version *will* get introduced anyway
though[1], so it still is important to know that it doesn't break anything,
or it'll be needed to be fixed later.

What to do? Ship with the 2.12-10 udeb in sarge, and cross fingers for
the 2.12p-4[.x] version for sarge r1?


[1] Well, if there's no security update, one could decide to leave it
    the same also for point releases though
