Thanks for pointing this out. Now what in libc6 2.3.5 doesn't work anymore
with 2.2 kernels, and why doesn't libc6 test for the running kernel
version before attempting an upgrade?

Should this bug be assigned to apt, or libc6, or what?

I'll try your 2.6.8 sometime; is the stuff required to build miboot
floppies in the powerpc kernel source, and would building a minimal 2.6.13
kernel fit on floppy?
