linux-image-2.6.16-rc5 installation problems on S/390

I don't really understand what's happening here. 2.6.15 images install
perfectly and use initramfs-tools, but 2.6.16 seems to get totally
confused and tries to use yaird instead.
The system is running 2.4.27.

ii  initramfs-tools   0.55b    tools for generating an initramfs
ii  udev              0.087-2  /dev/ and hotplug management daemon
un  yaird             <none>   (no description available)

$ sudo dpkg -i linux-image-2.6.16-rc5-s390_2.6.15+2.6.16-rc5-0experimental.1_s390.deb

 Hmm. The package shipped with a symbolic link /lib/modules/2.6.16-rc5-s390/source
 However, I can not read it: No such file or directory
