I haven't seen this yet (I've been building CDs for the last 2 weeks on a
sparc with a 2.2.1 kernel with one IDE and three SCSI drives).

Actually, I'd like to see the kernel-source-sparc package from
incoming installed.  The sparc platform offers 2.0.35 kernels on
non-Ultra machines, and 2.2.1 kernels on all machines.  (We need a
late 2.1 or 2.2 kernel to boot on the Ultras, and it is too late to
build new kernels and boot floppies. - Also, my Sparc20 still refuses
to boot with any 2.0 kernel that Debian provides, so I need the 2.2.1
kernel on that platform too.)
