I'm an user who always runs 'yum upgrade kernel' whenever a newer 
version of the kernel appears in the olpc rpm repositories.

I know how to copy the output of 'yum upgrade kernel' to where today's 
XO-1 and XO-1.5 kernels are actually being loaded from.

If you change to this new packaging, __PLEASE__ publish a script (or 
instructions) that will allow an user to (manually) rebuild a newer 
kernel version into the appropriate actos/runos/actrd/runrd forms.

Thanks,  mikus
