right, kernel updates do not apply until after reboot.  the latest
kernel images no longer warn about this, which has lead to an increased
number of users opting not to reboot after upgrade (at least from
the volume of similar resolutions to postings on this list recently).

kernel team, would it be possible to get this warning reintroduced or
added to the notification daemon?  we want to keep users informed about
the actions they need to take to stay secure, right?
