Re: not running depmod at boot time

What if you don't use the 'install' target?  I certainly don't.  Does the
'modules_install' target also run depmod?  I don't claim to understand what
the comments in the kernel Makefile say about it, other than that they
imply there's some dependency on System.map.

Speaking as the "user" in this discussion, if depmod is no longer going to
be run at boot, and my current kernel installation method isn't going to do
it, I need to make sure I do it myself or change how I install kernels.
