Is identical building on any kernel required (and tested)?


A self-compiled kernel with CONFIG_IPV6=n

Imagine the next time Linus changes the kernel versioning,
he chooses <year>.<month>.<revision>
Will every reproducible package in buster build identical on the
bullseye+1 kernel 2022.11.321 ? [1]

[1] the wheezy LTS updates are now built on buildds running stretch
    kernels, and in buster we will have the similar situation that
    nearly everyting in the initial release will be built on stretch
    kernels while post-release updates will be built on buster,
    bullseye and bullseye+1 kernels
