Thanks. I've updated the bug to note that it should be fixed in 2.6.27
and to ask for feedback.

This bug report also clarifies that "please use a kernel appropriate for
your CPU" is in fact an error message produced by the kernel and not (as
I thought) a message produced by the installer, so please disregard my
previous request to file a bug on base-installer with /proc/cpuinfo
