But that all went out the window with the linux-2.6 source upload.
Now it is linux-2.6 version 2.6.12-1 getting replaced by 2.6.13-1 and
kernel-tree-2.6.12-1 is repalced by kernel-tree-2.6.13-1. No more
2.6.12 source for the images.
And D-I does not have a depends or build-depends on the tree anyway as
it downloads the precompiled debs, unpacks them and repack them
differently as udebs.
The best and only solution sofar is to megre the
linux-kernel-di-<arch> udebs into the linux-2.6 package and get them
build directly when the source is compiled.
