Actualy there are 2 problems:

1. Slow archs will keep the kernel-source from migrating to
testing. That is if those archs are still testing blockers.

I think this can seriously harm the amount of testing the kernel gets.

2. Each kernel-image-di-<arch> source needs the right kernel-image
version and source for its architecture to be present in the archive
to be GPL compliant.

This is only a problem for the archive software to keep track
of. Someone has to write code for this.

The D-I build should be using only the linux-kernel-di udebs if I'm
not mistaken. As long as they are available D-I should keep building.

Or did I miss something and the linux-kernel-di packages will
disapear into the main kernel-source package?
