Please call me over-picky but without checking the history is your
"most" not a sign that there is at least one change to d/rules which was
needed to fix some lintian issue.  I do not want you to change linux
d/rules file and I think it is pretty safe from beeing NMUed just to
switch to dh.  My point was that I doubt that any "working for years"
d/rules has no lintian issues.

Kind regards
