Apart from the fact that mips/mipsel have no 2.6 images in etch, so
doing this right now will cause no kernels to be installed on the CDs
for the weekly/daily etch builds. I'll have to add conditionals into
the generation code to only add 2.4 stuff if no 2.6 kernel images have
been found, I guess. Thoughts?
