Package: linux-kernel-di-ia64
Version: 0.54
Severity: important

  I did a d-i build today from svn and the build went fine.  However, when
testing the 2.6 kernel I noticed a couple udebs were missing.
nic-shared-modules-${kernel:Version} and scsi-core-modules-${kernel:Version}
are needed on a 2.6 build; but those udebs don't exist under 2.4.
Can you take a look at this for us?

Reason is, some scsi stuff is linked statically for 2.4, while its modular
under 2.6 - see #236699.

Now - a few possible fixes (in my order of preference)
  1) figure out the proper way to make initrd-tools choose the v2 driver
     and not the v1 driver.  That way, I can make these additional modules,
     and can document the procedure in README.Debian
     (jbailey is the initrd-tools maintainer, he'd make a good starting point)
  2) do two separate package list flavors for ia64
  3) figure out a way to make a single package list work for ia64 - i think
     there was some syntax - starting the line with a '-' or something - that
     let you specify a given udeb as optional
