In the end I'm going to go with just duplicating the entire block with
and without the kvers, which is a bit unsatisfactory but the best I
could manage with the syntax available.

I'm also planning to use:
        if test -n "${fk_kvers}"; then
(and then fk_kvers throughout)

Which should allow for a very rudimentary form of picking which kernel
you wanted by "setenv fk_kvers FOO; boot" (e.g. to boot older versions
in an emergency).
