I am the victim who issues the Debian-ized kernel.
I have a problem here. The binary interface of the 1.3.x kernel is
diverging from the 1.2.13 system to the extent that it's difficult to
keep one binary system that runs both kernels. I hear that the net
utils change for 1.3.4x too. I can keep tracking 1.2.13 for a while, I
hope, with help. Perhaps we should hint to Linus that it's time to go
to 1.4 and try to arrive at a stable version. Just as long as they
first make scsi drivers probe the bus when they are loaded from

What package installs it? If it's your package, remove it from the
debian.preinst or debian.postinst script (have your package install
such a script - look at the way other packages do that). If it's someone
else's package, nudge them about it.
