[Popcon-developers] maybe a proper fix for #229237

Not reporting info for files in /boot/ will reopen bug #229237.
Well I wonder if the correct fix to bug #229237 is not to change the
regexp to /boot/System\.map-(.*).
We need more test but is seems that:
1) /boot/System\.map-(.*). atime match the corresponding kernel boot time
given by last.
2) unlike /boot/vmlinuz-(.*), these files are not read by lilo (when
Currently popcon report exactly the opposite of what it should:
Kernel no more in use are marked as voted because lilo read them when
installing the newer kernel (because of the /vmlinuz.old symlink).
(grub do not do that of course).
Could you check on yours machine if this is more accurate ?
(There is the issue that long running kernel will be reported as OLD, but
this is another bug #327693)
Imagine a large red swirl here.
