Reassigning to debian-installer, which is likely to be a way better
place to start than general.

It might just be a matter of setting the right option (HEARTBEAT, as a
wild guess) on the kernel side though, so I'm copying the kernel
maintainers. They're welcome to steal the bug from src:debian-installer
if they feel it's appropriate.

Looking at svn or at installed kernels, I don't see this option set
anywhere but sh4 and m68k though, so I'm not sure the installed system
would be different than the installer one…
