RFC: Updating hppa kernel-image packages
[d-k copied about ABI change]
The current crop of 2.6.8 kernel images in unstable and testing are
quite good, but a new upload is required to fix some security bugs
and some hppa-related bugs.
This is basically a call for suggestions for what I should backmerge
to 2.6.8 from recent CVS. I will go through the parisc-linux-cvs archive
again and try to pull what I can see, but I'd like a bit of help.
These changes can be categorized in two, ones which change the module
ABI, and ones that don't.
To help keep the lives of the debian-installer folks sane, I'm not
going to honour suggestions to turn on/off various drivers, unless
I get an explicit ok.
[Non-ABI breaking changes] - The following are candidates for merging
- Rebuild against recent kernel source for security fixes.
- Grant pointed out some recent fixes he made to ccio and sba_iommu
which fix memory starvation on low-memory machines with iommus.
[ABI breaking changes] - The following will wait until the next ABI
rev from kernel-source.
- Disabling USB_DEBUG in all the configs. This was erroneously
enabled and is disabled on all other architectures.
There seem to be a few security bugs waiting on a rev of the ABI as
 - for those following at home, the ABI of a kernel is reflected
in the package name, like the soname of a shared library.
