That'd be fine if they had the option to install a Debian 2.6 kernel
instead and then continue. But I fear that a cpio depending on
glibc-2.5 will soon afterwards transition to testing as well, and both
initramfs-tools and yaird depend on it, so running apt-get install
linux-image-2.6.*-*-* will lead to unsatisfied dependencies, AFAICT.
So those users will be left with either having to fix their system
manually with some dpkg commands, or stay with the current testing.
Or maybe I'm missing something and the issue is less severe in reality.
