Is the -g5 kernel at least compatible with the -power4 modules? (On the
face of it, it seems that it should be, with the exception of the extra
serial modules on -g5 which presumably we don't want to use anyway.) In
that case, we could save a fair bit of space by shipping both kernels
but only one set of modules, and somehow educating d-i about this.
