| AFAIK we can't solve this by packaging (at the moment). The kernel and
| live in different partitions and thus can be updated independently.
Huh. Well, the kernel package already has a foot in both partitions and
can write stuff to both. So this is a trivial issue to move to a single
kernel package for sure.

| the same time.
Liek so much else, that's just waiting on someone saying DO IT. What
else is it waiting on precisely?
| PS: I never tried to SSH in a Mass Storage device. ;-)
Really? Well, I guess you never tried mounting what we had before as a
block device, echoing something into it as a tty, printing to it, as we
can now either.
