Bug#284356: incompatability with modules from -2 version of same package

Package: kernel-image-2.4.27-1-386
Version: 2.4.27-6
Severity: grave
Tags: d-i

Loading a module from the -2 version of this package when the -6 version
of the kernel is running fails for at least all the ide chipset modules
and for the ide generic module, with many missing symbols:

Since I uploaded udebs for d-i built from this new kernel build, this has
broken netboot installs on i386 using the daily builds, since such a netboot
install boots the -6 kernel, then downloads -2 udebs from testing. It seems
that unless this imcompatability is fixed, we won't be able to update d-i
in testing to use the new kernel without breaking netboot and floppy installs
using the d-i rc2 images.

This proably also breaks third party modules in debian that are built
against version -2, doesn't it?

I think that this is a bug in this build of the kernel. If the changed
symbols are for some reason unavoidable, the kernel package name should be
changed to kernel-image-2.4.27-1-386. Of course that would suck and leave
us with d-i problems and so I hope you can just fix it..
