Bug Description

I am working on package which will bootstrap cross compiler using *-source packages from gcc/eglibc/binutils/linux ones. To make it possible I need packaging rules from debian/ directory available.

I had a discussion with Andy about it and we also decided that it would be good to move linux tarball from /usr/src/ to /usr/src/linux/ directory and keep symlink for compatibility in Maverick.

linux-source binary package should follow gcc-4.5-source layout.

Marcin informs me that this is needed by alpha-3 in order for him to complete the cross-compilation spec on schedule. Andy, is this a feasible timeline?

I did tests and will need more files shipped:

- debian/changelog
- most of debian.master

Working on list.

From debian.master:

- changelog
- control*
- copyright
- d-i/modules/ with any file (empty is fine)
- d-i/firmware/ with any file (empty is fine)
- d-i/kernel-versions*
- d-i/package-list
- rules.d/ - all ARCH files

To run "dpkg-buildpackage" I would need to remember to copy debian.master/changelog to debian/ dir.
