There are still 2.4.27 kernel image packages for ia64 in Debian unstable
and testing. I'm told having relocatable on breaks 2.4 kernels. So,
the sequence we need to follow is to update debian-installer to no
longer know about 2.4 kernels, then evict the 2.4 kernel image packages
for ia64 from unstable+testing... then I'll be happy to turn relocatable
on by default. If someone really wants to run a 2.4 kernel, they can
learn how to edit the elilo options, too... ;-)
