We can special-case kernel modules in the Extras buildsystem if we need
to, and we can likely take some of the pain away by auto-building the
modules when a new kernel comes out somehow.  We'd then mail the
submitter if the auto-build failed.  It's not hard, just ugly.

Where it gets more interesting is if you want to build an updated SRPM
for a kernel that's not the most recent.

We can also try to special-case the up/smp/hugemem thing if it's a pain
to do %foreach in the specfile.  We probably want to keep specfiles
cleaner and move some of the complexity into the build system to keep
the barrier-to-entry lower for packages themselves.
