If they require the kernel-latest packages, and those packages are
uninstallable, isn't d-i beta2 currently already broken on s390?

FWIW, seeing that they were uninstallable and "pending removal", I went
ahead and hinted them out of testing (before this further subthread).  I
don't see that this does any harm at all; they can certainly get back in if
they become installable again, but they're useless to have in testing until
