Files in second .deb but not in first
-rw-r--r--  root/root   /boot/acpi.ko

This appears to be due to the fact that the new kfreebsd-8 +squeeze1
kernel on -i386 builds acpi.ko as a module, which is then picked up by
existing "install this module if it exists" rules in kernel-wedge.

Actually, the problem is not presence of acpi.ko itself, but the fact
that a symlink to this file exists in /boot/.  This is due to an old
postinst kludge from pre-GRUB time.


A quick fix would be appreciated, whether from the kfreebsd or d-i side, given the increasingly short period of time we have remaining until the
point release is scheduled.

Attached patch should fix the problem.  I can upload a fixed
kfreebsd-8 this evening (feel free to NMU if someone has time to
verify earlier than that).

Forgive my ignorance on the precise mechanics, but is it correct that the /boot/kernel/kernel.gz symlink creation was also removed?

Would you be able to also upload a kfreebsd-i386 build? That would help reduce the turnaround time before we can schedule a rebuild of kfreebsd-kernel-di-i386.
