==> remove kernel-image-2.6.6-i386/2.6.6-1

Easily done.  The above hint should take effect with tomorrow's britney
run, with the effect that the 2.6.6 kernel-image packages for i386 will
be removed from sarge at dinstall on the 14th, and will be held out
pending resolution of this RC bug.

Are there any RC issues with the 2.6.5 kernels that warrant keeping a
close watch on this issue going forward?  Are there other architectures
that would be affected by this bug?
