This bug report was tagged severity "serious"

https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Developer#severities says that severity
level means:

  > is a severe violation of Debian policy (roughly, it violates a
  > "must" or "required" directive), or, in the package maintainer's or
  > release manager's opinion, makes the package unsuitable for release.

I see no justification for that severity level in the discussion, so i'm
changing it to normal.  If you think that's wrong, feel free to reset it
to "serious" with an explicit justification, thanks!

Thanks for tracking this down, gniibe!

If there's a specific patch that we should include in the debian release
of the 2.2 branch, please let me know.  The patch mentioned in
doesn't look like it will apply directly to the 2.2 branch.

In the meantime, people with the affected key/hardware combination
should be able to continue using the workaround described by vagrant.
