The modules that had been in the "unsupported" RPM are still kept in
the same directory that they were when they were in the unsupported
RPM (/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/unsupported) so that you can tell the
modules that we are likely to put less effort into fixing; we still
wanted to convey reasonable expectations based in the information
that we used to get to having an "unsupported" RPM in the first place.

rpm -ql kernel will make it pretty obvious.  :-)
