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-2.6.32-1-486 [i386] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-4kc-malta [mipsel] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-5kc-malta [mipsel] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-686-bigmem [i386] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-686 [i386] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-amd64 [i386, amd64] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-itanium [ia64] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-mckinley [ia64] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-parisc [hppa] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-parisc64 [hppa] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-powerpc [powerpc] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-powerpc64 [powerpc] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-sb1-bcm91250a [mipsel] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-sb1a-bcm91480b [mipsel] 
linux-image-2.6.32-1-sparc64 [sparc]

For now I've only included it in input-modules for powerpc, i386 and amd64 
(all flavors).

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.

Thanks again,
