The netboot and businesscard at least will be broken, AIUI, because they
get udebs from the network and those need to match the d-i kernel.  OTOH
they'll probably be broken by non-ABI-changing kernel changes anyway, so
maybe that doesn't matter.  For the other images I don't believe there
should be a problem, as they already include the appropriate module
udebs and install the final kernel through the linux-image-foo
