Hrm, I thought if /boot was separate the symlink would be made in /boot,
so /vmlinuz of the boot device (whether that was / or /boot) was always
valid. Seems like I was wrong -- I have two systems with separate /boot,
and one has the symlinks in / the other in /boot (and I only looked at
the second last time around). I think I must have some tweaks
to /etc/kernel-img.conf (specifically to link_in_boot) which I'd
forgotten about, sorry for that.

This does make me wonder if f-k with your patch needs to be more careful
about overwriting /boot/vmlinuz in case it is a symlink.
