Well I did say "OM kernel package".

Yes, it's a pretty good test.

I have no idea about FSO intention about the kernel or which config they
like to use.  defconfig-2.6.24 is nice because you can just update the
monolithic kernel and forget about modules for most cases, but the
defconfig-gta02 that makes more modules is best for packaging since it
gives the flexibility about gadget mode you want.

I would bring it up with them, maybe it's like it is right now because
nobody mentioned about different config possibility being useful.
