Bug#408945: wishlist: publishing of a new kernel-image for Sarge needed asap

Package: kernel-image-2.6.8-2-386
Version: 2.6.8-16sarge1
Severity: wishlist


some modules such as the spca5xx for some webcams have problems with the
current generic kernel-image-2.6.8:
I was able to compile from tarball 20060501 at http://mxhaard.free.fr/
but it doesn't work. There is a patch but if I'd like to install a
recent version of spca, I need a kern higher than 2.6.11.
On the other hand there is now gspcav1 but the minimal kernel
requiremetns are higher than 2.6.8:

it would be nice publishing asap a new kernel-image for the Sarge, since
my wife and some friends prefer continuing using it for its stability.
