This patch is not really a problem, but some comments.

- We will need a hard commitment from the squashfs-modules maintainer that
  he will be prompt about uploading new versions when there are new kernel
  uploads with either a new kernel major/minor change or an ABI change.
- This will break the current massbuild.modules script; it will need to be
  adapted to deal with multiple source packages. I have some ideas for
  this and will try to work something out (probably also integrating and
  rationalizing the massbuild and massbuild.modules scripts).

I also think it would make sense to move the package "modules" files and 
the "package-list" descriptions for these udebs to kernel-wedge, so we'll 
no longer need to include them in the package itself (except if overrides 
are needed.

I have just done that for loop-aes. This patch will need to be adjusted to 
use that same method (which will also make it quite a bit smaller). Sorry 
for the extra work, but this should probably have been done a while back 
and this was a nice excuse...
