This is not quite correct. The kernel-image postinst can
optionally *not* do the symlinks -- however, it does do the symlink
changes as a default, unless asked not to.

*My* current practice is to allow kernel package to manage
/vmlinuz and /vmlinuz.old, and manage /vmlinuz.stable,
/vmlinuz.unstable manually, and have /boot/linux.bin and
/boot/root.bin as rescue kernels
