I think his point is that you shouldn't attempt to package something
as vital as the linux kernel without having understood it. You
should understand the stuff you package in any case, but sometimes
it's more important.

System.map is used to translate addresses into function names,
mainly for debugging and logging. But please correct me if I am
wrong.
