Is still correct?

Hi all.

I started a Lucid TuxOnIce tree today.

Applying the patch was a no brainer - the vanilla 2.6.32 patch applies 
without rejects - but I decided to try and do things the really-o 
truly-o Ubuntu way. I've been following

to the letter, as far as I'm able. I'm trying to follow the "Bumping the 
ABI" instructions, but they seem to be out of date. After fakeroot 
debian/rules clean, I have:

nigel at nigel-laptop:/usr/src/cg-ubuntu-lucid$ git add debian
nigel at nigel-laptop:/usr/src/cg-ubuntu-lucid$ git status
# On branch combined
# Changes to be committed:
#   (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)
#	new file:   debian/changelog
#	new file:   debian/control
#	new file:   debian/control.stub
#	new file:   debian/copyright
#	new file:   debian/rules.d/
# Untracked files:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)
#	debian.master/control
#	debian.master/control.stub
#	debian.master/d-i/kernel-versions

Should it be saying the following?

touch debian.master/rules.d/
fakeroot debian/rules clean
git add debian.master
git commit -s -F debian/commit-templates/bumpabi

By the way, is there any way to see exactly what the ABI differences 
are? I know TuxOnIce exports extra symbols, but I don't think any of the 
existing ones should have changed.

Thanks in advance!
