      * Kernel firmware was splitted out to separate package. This will
        allow installing different kernel flavors at the same time.
      * Initramfs images and kernel links are generated from mkinitfs
        trigger rather than from post-install/upgrade. (bug #171)
      * The kernel /boot/grsec was renamed to /boot/vmlinuz-grsec and
        the intiramfs image /boot/grsec.gz was renamed
        to /boot/initramfs-grsec
