Re: The current kernel doesn't support the Logical Volume Manager. You may need to load the lvm-mod module.

Yeah, I thought that.  However I wonder why that is.  Where's the ABI boundary?
So it's "just" fixed for some set of symbols known to be used by external
modules?  And the symbols used by the kernel udebs can change at every time?

Currently we only ship udebs on CD images, which in turn cannot sanely be PXE
booted, AFAIK.

I guess we can then conclude that keeping the old installer binaries doesn't
actually help anybody.  Not even keeping those of r0.  We should keep the old
sources around in squeeze-r0 though.  For all of them.

Kind regards,
