That looks very likely. Thanks for tracing that.
It seems to be available for most arches, but I doubt that including it
makes sense for all of them:
linux-image-2.6.32-1-amd64 [i386, amd64]
For now I've only included it in input-modules for powerpc, i386 and amd64

The config of the D-I kernel is identical to the config of the
corresponding kernel on installed systems, or else it is available from
the corresponding linux-image package. For reasons of size and memory
usage including the file will not be included in images.
