Thanks for your feedback.

Is this with alsa or with dmasound?

It was called NEWS.Debian.gz because apt-listchanges supposedly
displays the news in a prominent way.

The command is `mkinitrd -o /initrd.img'. If you are running a
different version, add the release, as in 'mkinitrd -o initrd.img
2.6.5-powerpc'. In fact, I used this command a couple of times during
testing, I will add a remark to the NEWS.Debian file.

The kernel works nicely without a hotplug agent installed. And even
if you need to load the modules for a USB keyboard in order to have
console access (which is the reason for this section), you do not need
a hotplug agent, because you can use the initrd or /etc/modules.
