	Yes, but the use of make-kpkg is not mandated, so you should
 stick to uname or cat /proc/version or cat /proc/ksyms instead.

 I have passed in ignorance through a cycle of many rebirths, seeking
 the builder of the house. Continuous rebirth is a painful thing. But
 now, housebuilder, I have found you out. You will not build me a
 house again. All your rafters are broken, your ridge-pole
 shattered. My mind is free from active thought, and has made an end
 of craving. 153, 154
