Re: Towards X11-based d-i: v2, final report

Heya again.

And now a follow-up: speakup is now enabled again. I'm going to
emphasize what changed (top-bottom-line: not much).

While I was reluctant to do so, I've finally replaced the speakup-
disabled image with a speakup-enabled image. The former can still
be found in the without-speakup/ subdirectory.

v2 (with speakup, and with 2.6.32-3 kernel):
  Total system size: 46422k (2,8M libs, 9,8M kernel modules)
  Initrd size: 17705k
  Kernel size: 2077k

The speakup-disabling patch was replaced with a kernel-version-
switching one (0004-*).

 * Since I've rebuilt an image specially to enable speakup again, I
   asked Samuel to do a quick test, and he said the dummy driver
   looked like working fine. He also noted we probably don't
   want/need to start X in that case, but that's apparently just a
   trivial patch to check the frontend.
