Yeah, sorry, i misread that the first time.

We can migrate -6 to testing just as well, and as said, -7 is around the
corner, as soon as we get Manoj to fix (or otherwise investigate), the
linux-doc/linux-manual creation stuff in k-p.

Actually, Bastian was about to upload -6 without even waiting for,
because i made the mistake of fixing the mkvmlinuz support script, without
keeping the old version around and naming the fixed version as a separate
patch, which i still find overkill nowaday, but hey.

So, we asked him to wait for .4, but i am not sure he would have waited for -5
to go to testing, and anyway, -4 is in testing now :)
