It didn't atke me as long as I expected to do my other chores
and get the new packages ready. I have put them _tempoarily_
up on http://debian.vergenet.net/

There is a new kernel-source-2.4.26 package, 2.4.26-4 
and a new kernel-image-2.4.26-i386 package, also 2.4.26-4.
There are no changes to the kernel-image package,
other than building it against the new kernel-source.

The change log for the kernel-source package is:

   * Fix stack allocation in crypt(). Patch by Herbert Xu
     (closes: #257120)
     . crypto/cipher.c
   * Reversed patch to PCI initialisation code on Alpha
     Patch by Herbert Xu, Steve Langasek
     (closes: #253787)
     . arch/alpha/kernel/core_cia.c

If there are no objections from the kernel-team I plan
to upload these tomorrow.

Feel free to test, build other binary packages etc...  I do not plan to
make any changes to this unless something _bad_ crops up.  But It would
be probably best not to upload a kernel-image package that is built from
kernel-source-2.4.26-2.4.26-4, just in case there is a last minute
