Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.26-2
Severity: serious

The current versatile kernel doesn't boot in QEMU. This bug should
not stop 2.6.26 from migrating to testing though since versatile is
not a platform that is used a lot.

Aurelien Jarno looked at the problem and found:

| It's because I have enabled tickless options in the kernel. I don't
| know if it is actually a qemu or a kernel problem, but given we are
| close to the release, the best is simply to disable this options.
| Unfortunately I am afraid this will change the ABI...

I'll disable the option when we change the ABI.
