Hi Peter,

This is fixing the URL from which a kernel package is fetched from,
updating it to an archival (thus stable) location.  The current
location is transient, and Debian removes packages from those
locations after a given amount of time.  Without this patch, the test
is never going to be executed.  The package itself is unchanged, as
can be seen from the verification hash that was not changed.

While this is far from critical, the main benefit of having this in
4.2, as opposed to in the next cycle, is to not "ship" a broken test
in a release.  It would also help downstream packages running such

And sorry for not giving the complete explanation before.

- Cleber.
