Yum-presto shouldn't matter since when it sees an error like this, it would
download the full RPM instead, and even if it didn't, if the rebuild
subsequently failed it would download the full RPM after that. It shouldn't be
possible for a corrupted RPM to get into the transaction.

Anyway, I downloaded kernel-devel-3.5.0-0.rc0.git12.1.fc18.x86_64.rpm from Koji
and used yum reinstall on it. After this, the corresponding System.map file
exists, though it didn't before. While doing this, I was running the 3.4.0
non-debug kernel as usual.
