Building kernel udebs from kfreebsd-*


linux-2.6 did the lead with building the kernel udebs straight from the kernel
package.  With that change we always get current udebs for use in the
installer.  Also it's much easier from a release management point of view if
you do not need to get all the udeb source packages rebuilt for the latest
kernel update.

Would there be a volunteer to implement that for kFreeBSD too?  It could be as
easy as calling kernel-wedge post-build, but at least for linux-2.6 changes
to kernel-wedge were necessary[1]. 

I guess the best starting points would be the existing kernel udeb source
packages and bwh's changes to linux-2.6[2].

Kind regards and thanks in advance,
Philipp Kern
