Congratulations; nice to see some hot action :)

I've been pondering on using kernel-package to generate 
debug 'vmlinux' images which are used in tools like 
kernel crash dump analysis tools and oprofile[1].

Currently I'm running 'make vmlinux' after 
generating a package, but it would be 
convenient if 'vmlinux' is included 
somewhere like /usr/lib/debug/lib/modules/`uname -r`/vmlinux 
(which seems to be the case with RedHat[2]).
