fai-kernels for etch


due to time contraints (and then starting too late) I failed with making fai 
work (in a releasable fashion) with the standard debian kernels in time for 
etch, so fai in etch will need fai-kernels :-( 

I already discussed this with Dann Frazier (bcc:ed), who said doing security 
support for fai-kernels is no problem. (After all, it's just adding a 
changelog entry and rebuilding the package once a new linux-source-$version 
is available.)

So I have one question: should I *now* (let someone) upload a new version of 
fai-kernels with build-depends on linux-source-2.6.18 and then open a RC bug 
to prevent it from migrating to etch? 

Or should I wait with an upload until 2.6.18 has entered etch? I fear that the 
freeze will happen then... Though as there are no big changes in fai-kernels 
planned, I think a review of fai-kernels is painless.


P.S.: the day after etch has been released fai-kernels can be removed from 
unstable :) We are basically there, but the changes are too drastic and 
untested for etch.
