  * 2.6.24 atl2
    Can be added if wanted, will require upload of new package atl2 to etchnhalf.
  * 2.6.24 aufs
    Can be added if wanted, will require upload of new package aufs to etchnhalf.
    If unionfs doesn't make it with 2.6.24, aufs needs to be pulled in in order to keep functionality.
  * 2.6.24 btrfs
    Not needed; recommended to be skipped (would require new package btrfs and btrfs-tools).

    Unproblematic, replaces the own binary-modules built in etch by loop-aes itself.

Other updates

  • firmware-nonfree: iwlwifi needs firmware-iwlwifi. Updating firmware-nonfree (0.4) from etch with firmware-nonfree (0.10) from unstable is unproblematic.

  • ivtv: ivtv needs updated ivtv-utils for 2.6.24, see #448893

  • kqemu: needs update to build with both 2.6.18 and 2.6.24, but is trivial. upload pending.
