security fixes for woody sparc kernels?

Hi all,

Does anyone know the status of the sparc kernels in woody with respect to 
all the recent kernel security fixes?  Looking through the list of 
advisories at http://www.debian.org/security/ I don't see any mention of 
sparc architecture.  (I have an UltraSparc IIi, which is a firewall so I'd 
just as soon not put a compiler on it to build a new kernel myself...)

I'm currently running "kernel-image-2.4.20-sun4u" version 26.potato.1,
last updated 20 March 2003 (according to the package changelog), which
IIRC I got from woody-proposed-updates.  Any woody-compatible upgrade

Finally, the only account I have on the firewall is root; since all the 
latest problems seem to be local root exploits, do I need to worry at all?
