Please look at the whole discussion of #231538. Joey made a good
#231538 was closed because I introduced a patch for glibc preinst
kernel version check. But as you pointed out, it's true that we need
to create upgrade-i386-80386 for sarge to support smooth upgrade path
for real i386 machine.
The problem is: (1) we're lazy, no one has prepared upgrade-i386-80386
directory, (2) no one has real i386 80386 machine to test that
If you have real i386 machine, could you work for this issue?
