The patches look properly reviewed by you.  The change to oldsys-preseed
only affects this particular type of machine, the diff for debian-installer
looks sane and I think it's you call as the maintainer to include
the minix modules into the armel-orion5x d-i kernel.

The dns323-firmware-tools package will need a freeze exception by the
"testing RMs", though.

I am happy to let this in with the first point release if the d-i RMs
gave their ACKs about it.  A statement about this seems to be missing
from your explanations.

Kind regards,
Philipp Kern
