(I didn't forget about this patch series BTW, it's still flagged in my

I'm overall happy to merge these patches to get some more testing before
we move further towards the jessie release, so having them now looks
good to me. Some minor nits (since I know close to nothing as far as
arch-specific stuff goes):
 - Can we please have some debian/changelog entries along with each
 - Using gzip's -n flag to try and limit entropy would be nice. (See
   the reproducible build effort.)
 - Shouldn't "concatenateable" be "concatenable" instead?
 - "supperfloppy" → "superfloppy"? (3/6)
 - copyright information in 3/6 should be reflected in debian/copyright.
 - "priviledges" → "privileges" (3/6)
 - "device-indepent" → "device-independent"? (4/6)

(I'm leaving the rest aside as it's mostly debian-cd specific.)
