Well, after think a little about this problem I come up with the
following idea how to solve that (no patch or code has been written
for that yet):

 - let the detection step at hw-detect module

 - teach apt-install how to install a package that depends on the
   target kernel version

   My idea here is to use:

     apt-install atl2-modules-TARGET_KERNEL

   This would then resolve it when possible and install the correct
   package for the target kernel. We could use
   base-installer/kernel/image to get the installed image and then
   with that find the kernel flavour.

What others think about that?
