I'm triing to port debian to a device called Pepperpad 3, I need some drivers
contained only in mm tree for the touchscreen; I use debian-live to test drivers
(since now with other less problematic drivers I had good success).
Anyway I've found the patch to revert and have again symlink for i386, so
make-kpkg will work again... (at least one problem is solve this morning)
