   * Bug fix: "kernel-package: latest unstable version breaks linux-2.6
     build on amd64", thanks to Frederik Schueler. Now we let the
     architecture still be whatever DEB_HOST_ARCH_CPU says it should
     be. Just set KERNEL_ARCH correctly on amd64/x86_64 machines early, so
     that make-kpkg clean does not flake out when there is no ./debian dir.
     Accept either x86_64 or amd64 as the architecture, just in case, when
     selecting the correct Makefile snippet. So it is perfectly fine to
     still say --arch=amd64, like  linux-2.6 does             (Closes: #344740).
   * Bug fix: "[powerpc] k-p 10.00x breaks debconf based /etc/kernel/*.d
     scripts like mkvmlinuz", thanks to Sven Luther. Well. In the recent
     10.X series, kernel package has started producing image packages whose
     maintainer scripts use debconf for user interaction. Unfortunately,
     this meant that any hook scripts called in the maintainer scripts for
     the image package (update-grub comes to mind), if they wrote anything
     at all to the STDOUT, would cause debconf to throw hissy fits, since
     it was expecting commands on STDOUT, not random chatter from the hook
     One solution was to call db_stop before calling the hook scripts, and
     redirecting stdout to stderr in hte invocation of the
     scripts. Unfortunately, this made any scripts that used debconf
     So, either we ban scripts that are interactive, or scripts that
     scribble on stdout.  Since the former makes some functionality
     impossible (some scripts can delicer added functionality and
     flexibility of they can interact with users), and the latter just
     needs a code change, I would prefer to ask packages that provide
     scripts to be used in kernel image postinst/postrm to use debconf for
     user interaction, and to send diagnostics to STDERR
                                                               (Closes: #344413).
