There is no kernel-image-2.4.27-r5k-cobalt source. The mipsel cobalt kernels
are built from the kernel-patch-2.4.27-mips source package. The 2.4-cobalt
patch is only for i386 cobalts like RaQ3.

kernel-patch-2.4.27-mips Build-Depends on kernel-source-2.4.27. The
testing migration scripts care about Depends, not Build-Depends.

Use kernel-patch-2.4.27-mips plus the kernel-source-2.4.27 deb from unstable.
