I've upgraded to the latest unstable on my box today, and this pulled in the
stock Debian 2.6.31 kernel, which, amusingly, boots just fine:
jurij@debian:~$ uname -a
Linux debian 2.6.31-1-sparc64-smp #1 SMP Mon Nov 16 14:12:48 UTC 2009 sparc GNU/Linux
jurij@debian:~$ zcat /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31-1-sparc64-smp | strings | grep gcc | head -1
Linux version 2.6.31-1-sparc64-smp (Debian 2.6.31-2) (firstname.lastname@example.org) (gcc version 4.3.4 (Debian 4.3.4-6) ) #1 SMP Mon Nov 16 14:12:48 UTC 2009
Can you try whether it works for you as well?
