It doesn't seem like kernel-source is there by default. I will verify
this in a moment.
Also, the documentation is somewhat misleading in that is says
list of packages that should only ever be installed, never
updated - kernels in particular fall into this category.
Defaults to kernel, kernel-smp, kernel-bigmem, kernel-enter-
prise, kernel-debug, kernel-unsupported.
which is a comma separated list. I couldn't find anything in the man
page about the default format of multi-value directives.
