I agree with that.

That's why I am not sure the bug is totally on the kfreebsd5-source side.
I would suggest something like linux-kernel-source and
freebsd-kernel-source, but I doubt the kernel team (the one dealing with
the linux kernel would accept that).

I'll change the "Provides: kernel-source" line by "Provides:
freebsd-kernel-source" in the next upload. Anyway no kfreebsd package
currently depends on kernel-source so I am not going to break any
