If you have a number of similar systems (e.g. a server park),
it's perfectly sensible to make a kernel-image package only
on one system, and install that on all the systems. I don't
see much sense in having a symlink on all of them that only
works on one system (if the other systems can live with the
link being broken, why need the link anyway?).
