oops, I posted before "cvs co kernel" has finished.
To allow a noarch sub-package, one has to use an ugly hack:

	ExclusiveArch: noarch %{all_x86} x86_64 ppc ppc64 ia64 sparc
        sparc64 s390x alpha alphaev56

I do not think is is appropriate here.  So I'd like to move these
modules to one separate source package or to individual source
packages to build them as "noarch".

Comments welcome.
