Well, as opposed to -powerpc-smp. They come from the name of the two
config i build (powerpc and powerpc-smp), but also is a limitation of
kernel-package, who cannot dissociate the version of the kernel from the
name of the resulting package.

I also think that vmlinuz-2.4.22 and vmlinux-2.4.22-smp should be
enough. In post sarge packages, i hope that there will be a full rebuild
of kernel-package in order to allow more advanced handling of
kernel-images packages.
