that would add another dependency loop - as busybox:
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.5-1)
in the middle term we want to get rid of busybox so that we don't need
glibc on the initramfs-tools, once it's ready you'll get a wishlist bug
for an udev-klibc.

the bug itself is an sarge upgrade bug,
but we can't get rid that quick of 2.6.15 as latest d-i uses it.
so i may need to take some time to see what i can do about ide.agent
on the old busybox-cvs-static.
