That's broken.
1) It is absolutely not clear to a reader of this erratum that he needs to 
download anything
2) There is no need for users to run all the commands in that script as 
only some of the modules will be relevant for his system
3) It does not explain how to get the relevant module udeb installed in 
the installer in the first place

I'd much prefer just to mention the problem and say it has been fixed in 
daily images and to use those instead.
