I'm still wondering why the feedback was so rare on this experiment with
fedora-kmodhelper. Was it to scary? I know it looks a bit unusual in the
first moment, but I think this solution (with a bit polishing) is the
best we found so far.

Panu, dwmw2, Jeremey, skvidal, mschwendt, Anvil, warren, everybody else
interested: What do you think about it?

I did not talk to dcbw about that yet but will do that soon. Anyway, we
still can hardcode the kvariants if it does not work in the beginning.

Agreed. And there is an additional benefit: the debug-packages are a lot
smaller if you build more then one

Great, thx. I'll wait for the results. This part anyway is independent
of the fedora-kmodhelper thing. 

/me thinks about the whole situation for a moment

If no one complains loudly soon about this fedora-kmodhelper idea in
above srpm then I think I'll work on modifying the last
extras-kmod-proposal to a solution with the fedora-kmodhelper scheme.
