Bug#317756: kernel-image-2.6.11-1-sparc64: console and mouse breakage

Package: kernel-image-2.6.11-1-sparc64
Version: 2.6.11-5
Severity: normal

I have this kernel running OK on a headless system, but it seems to be
non-useful on the console.  This is on a Blade 100 running OBP 4.15.7,
in case that's relevant.

The console output is messed up.  The first column is missing and a
fraction of characters are duplicated/overprinted or replaced by
non-ASCII ones.  It looks rather as though there's an off-by-one error
in assembling bits of a buffer.

When I started X, the mouse didn't work -- no pointer appeared -- but
there wasn't any obvious error in the server log.  I tried unplugging
the mouse with no effect.

All was OK when I reverted to the stable kernel.
