Please consider unblock kernel-package/11.013
This version corrects a bug that caused kernel images on sparc
to fail, and that bug is in testing as well. This closes a RC bug. (It
has just been uploaded with a high urgency, with a one line change, the
other changes have been in the archive for 9 days)
Other changes include:
a) A new french translation (documentation)
b) A lower bound on the po41 build dependency to ease backports,
c) Handling in kernel Xen code
d) Include the full set of headers for the x86 architecture.
That last feature closes an important bug, so would also qualify
The changelog from the debdiff is appended below.

+kernel-package (11.013) unstable; urgency=high
+ * [fd7dc12] Fix gzip invocation when compressing kernel image
+ When we factored out the copying of the kernel image source to the
+ destination, we forgot to change
+ gzip -9vc SRC > DEST
+ gzip -9fq DEST
+ since the copying is now done earlier. This cause build failures on
+ sparc. This fixes a grave bug, and the error was introduced in 11.003
+ Bug fix: "[sparc] no longer produces compressed kernels for
+ linux-2.6", thanks to Frans Pop (Closes: #506711).

+kernel-package (11.012) unstable; urgency=low
+ * New bug fixing release.
+ * [3f7296a] Handle Xen code configured into modern kernels
+ When building a current kernel with the in-kernel xen code enabled on
+ amd64, kernel-package does not recognize this correctly because it
+ matches on a config variable which apparently is no longer set (or
+ maybe even was never used in the in-kernel xen code). This commit adds
+ an extra stanza that adds support for the Xen in new kernels. The
+ suggestion and bug report were from Michael Holzt. The patch is a
+ three line change.
+ Bug fix: "does not recognize xen enabled kernel on amd64", thanks to
+ Michael Holzt (Closes: #503686).
+ * [720444c] Add french translations for the debconf templates
+ This is a new french translation for debconf templates in the packages
+ generated by kernel-package.
+ Bug fix: "[INTL:fr] French translation for debconf templates of
+ generated packages", thanks to Jean-Christophe (Closes: #503905).
+ * [debiandir:343ab3c] Update the build dependency for po4a
+ The version of po4a in Etch does not have the command line options we
+ need; so this build dependency helps in backporting.
+ Bug fix: "Backport to Etch fails with po4a error", thanks to Carsten
+ Aulbert (Closes: #505661).
+ * [4a35a16] Use the variable LINK_ARCH to include x86 headers
+ Use the LINK_ARCH variable instead of KERNEL_ARCGH variables in more
+ places; this ensures that the headers for x86 archies do not go
+ missing. We already have code to grab the headers from the new
+ location; but were looking at the wrong architecture name.
+ Bug fix: "Does not include complete asm tree in linux-headers", thanks
+ to Shane Wegner. This is an important bug. (Closes: #505038).
