I guess I don't understand how these tools do their job....I assumed that
when the .deb file "copied" the kernel image to /boot that would give the
kernel image a "new" time stamp.
What it sounds like you are implying is that the kernel image preserves
it's time stamp from the time it was compiled/created throughout the
process of being copied to .deb and /boot without change....thus the
kernel image should have an earlier timestamp......I think...
I guess it's back to UNIX 101. Let's see....last modification, last inode
change and last access....I guess ls -l must give you last
