d-i moving forward instead of backward is great news.
what should happen mid term are experimental builds
that use our trunk rc snapshots, that would help both dev.

you want to checkout bugzilla.k.o #9832 
what comes to a quick glance as relevant skipping usual alsa regressions
and suspend userspace kernel interactions is
#10290 jfs lock trouble
#10320 rt2x00 does not associate
#10328  performance drop for glx
#10366 [PATCH] Fix off-by-one errors in some pirq warnings
#10421 xfs troubles 
       (post 2.6.25 lots of xfs patches got merged maybe some should
        land in stable team)

please double check if i left something important out
