I have just noticed the following

This is not true. The woody kernel is definitely broken on s390, deadlock in I/O code. Fortunately we have a working kernel as part of the boot-floppies,
so that most of our users didn't notice it, but we had already several problems with the kernel when users build their own. So please accept the update.
We need not only the kernel-patch, but also an update of the kernel-image. It wasn't accepted by katie, probably because katie accepts
only one .udeb per package and architecture. Should I upload a version of the kernel-image without an .udeb?
