I've been using pbuilder-uml for as much building as possible for a
fair while now, with the user-mode-linux package in unstable and a
2.6.12 host kernel with the SKAS patch.

It's been working fine for me as far as I know, but I don't really
rebuild pacakges _that_ often. I'm happy to run the test script at
least. ^_^

I know almost nothing about the internals of pbuilder, but I'm
willing to learn. I was actually going to stick my hand in for
the kernel-patch-uml WNPP bug, but someone else volunteered to
bang it into shape, as I recall.

I'll go subscribe to the pbuilder-maint mailing list, and see where
it goes from there...
