Default Bug#508302: linux-image-2.6.26-1-ixp4xx: flash-kernel fails with kernel doesn't fit

Package: linux-image-2.6.26-1-ixp4xx
Version: 2.6.26-11
Severity: normal

The reportbug script downgraded this to normal. I believe this is not correct and should be severe. The kernel flash simply will not work. This is probably good as the machine will not break, but it also means a NSLU2 user cannot follow lenny on the NSLU2. As lenny is approacing release and, the NSLU2 is officially supported, how can we assist in the request to please test the new 2.6.26 kernel if it won't install?

full failre message from apt-get follows
