When we talked about this, I guess at FUDCon last year, didn't we end up
agreeing to have this stuff done from /sbin/new-kernel-pkg? Keeping the
implementation of things in the kernel package itself simple is a good
thing and carrying around the explicit scripts in the kernel package's
scriptlets doesn't help there.
I can put it in /sbin/new-kernel-pkg, but need to extend that to be
called in %posttrans then, which it isn't now. %posttrans guarantees
me it gets called after both kernel and kernel-devel are installed,
when they're installed in the same transaction.
