Bug#624794: Missing support for various storage and network devices

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-33
Severity: important

Since Linux 2.6.32 the following updates have been made to storage and
network drivers that might be used during installation.  The list is
based on the Kernel Newbies list and may be incomplete.  I have
excluded CAN and WAN drivers as unlikely to be useful, and SR-IOV VF
drivers as not necessary (they are a useful optimisation but we
already have PV networking drivers).  There are still some platform
drivers in the list that can probably be ignored as not useful in any
current kernel flavour.

I don't think we can cover all of these, even after excluding the
unused platform drivers.  So we'll need to prioritise.
