Bug#291536: kernel-source-2.4.27[-8]: Contains dummy file ':'

Package: kernel-source-2.4.27
Version: 2.4.27-8
Severity: minor

Hello Debian kernel maintainers,

After unpacking the tarball we end up with a file named ':' in

% tar jvtf /usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.27.tar.bz2 kernel-source-2.4.27/:
-rw-r--r-- root/root     61905 2005-01-13 07:30:31 kernel-source-2.4.27/:
% head :
kernel-source-2.4.27 (2.4.27-8) UNRELEASED; urgency=high

  * add dh_fixperms to the build targets to kernel-patch-debian-2.4.27
    to ensure that the permissions of the files in this package are
    sensible. (closes: Bug#288279) (Simon Horman)
  * 122_sec_brk-locked.diff
    [SECURITY] Fix vulnerability in the ELF loader code allowing
    local attacker to execute code as root; CAN-2004-1235. This is better
    known as the "uselib() bug". (closes: #289202) (Maximilian Attems)
  * 121_drm-locking-checks-1.diff, 121_drm-locking-checks-2.diff:

so kernel-source-2.4.27/: is probably an old version of

Bill. <ballombe@debian.org>

Imagine a large red swirl here.
