Something like this:

Lenny kernel fails to boot on Sparc workstations with PCI-Express

Due to an unfortunate interaction of a kernel fix with PCI-Express 
subsystem, Lenny default kernel will fail to boot on Sparc 
workstations with PCI-Express slots, like Ultra 25 and Ultra 45. As 
this problem has been discovered very late in the release cycle, we 
were unable to include a fix in the original Lenny release, but we'll 
do our best to eliminate the problem for the first point release.
