Ok, this seems to have Jurij's consent at least in principle.

But this:

broken before?  glibc still depends on l-l-d | l-k-h, and almost all of the
buildds still have l-k-h installed rather than l-l-d; but this change to
disable hppa image building *ensures* that 2.6.21-2 is not releasable (is
not suitable for testing), where 2.6.21-1 might have built just fine once
the hppa toolchain was fixed.

In the case of alpha, despite my irritation at having to revert this change
from the trunk before *beginning* to test 2.6.21 builds, at least there was
a kernel bug that needed to be fixed.  But hppa's bug is in the toolchain,
not in the kernel -- so this is certainly a regression, and once again it
doesn't look like the hppa porters were even consulted before the change was
made (firing off a notice to debian-hppa 5 hours before uploading is not
