There are 2.6.11 mol package in etch too, but there is already a bug report
against ftp.debian.org asking for its removal, i believe the packages are no
more in sid, and thus any upgrade path for 2.6.11 is difficult at best, and we
(the debian kernel team) really want to get ride of it.
And anyway, the patch should be backward compatible. No promise for 2.4
