We still have no usable linux-source deb. The prepatched source
currently shipped will not build vserver, xen and several archs and
the debian patch is not compatible to make-kpkg and it is undocumented
how to apply it manualy to get the per arch or per flavour parts of
Imho that makes the source package unusable. A bug about this is in
the BTS since forever.
