Hi,

Just a heads-up. I have implemented a new /sbin/installkernel script
and pushed it to edge. It will install boot images
as /boot/vmlinuz-$flavor instead of /boot/vmlinuz-$version-$flavor and
creating symlinks.

Reason is that we want support /boot on fat. It will make the ISO images
and boot USB more consistent with disk installs and it will make UEFI
booting simpler.

It did break things. mkinitfs would fource create a symlink pointing to
versioned kernel image. I have pushed an updated mkinitfs.

If you use edge then make sure that you have /boot/vmlinuz-grsec as a
file and not a symlink pointing to a nonexisting versioned image. If it
does run: apk upgrade -U && apk fix linux-grsec

Sorry.
