("they" is mostly "me" ;))
I failed to try to integrate one more flavour in the debian-kernel build
AFAICT at the time the scripts needed some modifications, I never had an
answer to my questions and then decided to focus on putting the package
into shape. I will retry post-etch (maybe also the kernel team will be
more interested then).

Here http://lists.debian.org/debian-kernel/2006/01/msg00653.html and my
self reply mainly. It probably became easier since Xen introduction but
I didn't have time to follow-up.
