First major gutsy breakage

It was only a matter of time ...

If you're uploading anything to gutsy involving compiled code, you'll
probably get build failure notifications from at least some of the
amd64, i386, and sparc build daemons. This is due to a glitch in the
kernel build triggered by the buildds switching over to using dash as
/bin/sh, which produced broken kernel header stubs in linux-libc-dev.
The relevant folks are working on it and failed builds will be retried,
so don't worry too much about these build failure notifications for now.
