Christof, you can simply uncomment these entries and rebuild the
kernel with skas3.

I had the patches commented out, when loading external kernel modules
started to fail miserably:

It is very possible, that it was unrelated to both uml and
host-skas3. I suspect that it had to do with yet another nice
kernel-source(code) hurdle change that did not save the config files
into /configs/ as they were used to build the kernels ...

uml-utilities are packaged under

Alexander, just to outrule this, did you build external modules
against that kernel (and were you able to properly load them)?

I'd very much like to see skas3 back to the ATrpms' kernel.
