And, actually, it seems from what I can see that the convention is to
put the kernel output in a file whose prefix is `vmlinuz' regardless
of what type of kernel it is: this is certainly what boot-floppies
expects, anyway. So unless there are any particular objections I
suggest changing to this. (I'm just putting a load of waffle in
kernel-package about subarchitectures.)
