it looks like this doesn't support Python 3 yet and I suspect that new
packages should. I'd suggest that instead of distutils' LooseVersion,
which was never meant for that, you use apt_pkg.version_compare. To be
fair it's not quite a Debian revision to parse but it's close enough
that the tokenization from our algorithm should work fine to sort kernel
