You need to install or upgrade some packages to make it work. You at
least need to install module-init-tools, because without is you won't
be able to load any modules. Upgrading the tools for your file systems
(e.g. reiserfprogs, e2fsprogs) and procps is also recommended. The rest
depends on what features you want to use. For the new cryptoloop api
you need updated mount and losetup programs, and maybe a newer
lmsensors package. Check the Changes file in the kernel source
Documentation directory for details. You can get all the packages you
need at backports.org.
