  1. etchnhalf - 2.6.25 install kernel?

    hey,
    Otavio asked me to look into the feasibility of using a 2.6.25-based
    installer for Beta2, and therefore etchnhalf (which would still be a
    2.6.24-based update).

    There would be obvious issues with consistency here, but if 2.6.25 is
    ready at the time, its a better thing for lenny to move forward.

    So, I'm looking for any specific known issues here - e.g., a driver
    known-broken in 2.6.25 that works well in 2.6.24. There are likely
    numerous cases of the inverse, but I don't know if its worth spelling
    those out.

    d-i moving forward instead of backward is great news.
    what should happen mid term are experimental builds
    that use our trunk rc snapshots, that would help both dev.

    you want to checkout bugzilla.k.o #9832
    what comes to a quick glance as relevant skipping usual alsa regressions
    and suspend userspace kernel interactions is
    #10290 jfs lock trouble
    #10320 rt2x00 does not associate
    #10328 performance drop for glx
    #10366 [PATCH] Fix off-by-one errors in some pirq warnings
    #10421 xfs troubles
    (post 2.6.25 lots of xfs patches got merged maybe some should
    land in stable team)

    please double check if i left something important out
