Default Debian's 2.6.27-rc5 build breaks some Sierra Wireless cards

See bug report (which was filed to unknown) below - can we get the
CONFIG_USB_STORAGE_SIERRA enabled in future 2.6.27-rcX/final builds? This
is needed to force newer Sierra Wireless cards into modem mode instead of
cd-rom mode.

Subject: linux-image-2.6.27-rc5-686-bigmem: Please include Sierra USB_STORAGE
option in 2.6.27 builds

Package: linux-image-2.6.27-rc5-686-bigmem
Version: 2.6.27~rc5-1~experimental.1~snapshot.12155
Severity: important


Please include the CONFIG_USB_STORAGE_SIERRA with 2.6.27 kernels. Since
2.6.27-rc4, newer Sierra wireless cards default to a CDROM mode, and
without the option above, there is no way to force them back to modem
mode. Thanks!
