potato boot-floppies 2.2.21 available for testing

I've built a 2.2.21 boot-floppies for the 2.2r3 point release of

I was hoping to get new kernels for i386 (straight 2.2.18) plus
PCMCIA, but we can rebuild with those images when they are available.

Someone please try out the version for i386 at
<URL:http://people.debian.org/~aph/current/> and let me know that it's
functional.  Someone who has FreeBSD partitions testing would be
appreciated (but you'd have to use the vanilla set).

Once I have independant confirmation it's functional, I'll upload it.

Followup with any reports to debian-boot@lists.debian.org, please.

Changelog is included below.
