Indeed, at least some of these *are* false positives; there is nothing that
prohibits the use of dashes in native version numbers, so I don't really
think it's appropriate to mass-file bugs against packages which appear to be
missing .diff.gz's until they've been verified individually.

Here are some false positives I found; I have not attempted to make a
comprehensive list.  However, noting that you've managed to tag large
numbers of core kernel packages as false-positives, I hope the reasons for
not encoding such a check in the archive software are now evident to you...
