This becomes important as kernel ABI starts working, and you can build a 
module for a given kernel ABI and have it work on any new (or old) kernel 
that maintains the same ABI.  No longer will modules be locked to a specific 
kernel version, and thus uname -r becomes irrelevant.  I do believe Jon 
Masters is giving a talk on this at OLS.
