Bug#473860: kernel-img.conf.5.gz belongs in this package

Package: linux-image-2.6-686
Version: 2.6.24+13

$ cat /etc/kernel-img.conf
# Kernel Image management overrides
# See kernel-img.conf(5) for details
$ man kernel-img.conf
No manual entry for kernel-img.conf

That's because it's in the WRONG PACKAGE: kernel-package.

# apt-get install kernel-package

Eight Megabytes just to have the missing man page? Bad. Please include
it with your linux-image-*, (instead of, or perhaps in addition to
somehow, kernel-package, which basic users do not use.)
