    As a former proponent of /proc/config (I wrote one of the much-debated
    patches), I tend to agree. Debian's make-kpkg does the right thing, namely
    treating .config the same way it treats System-map, putting it in the
    package and eventually installing it in /boot/config-x.y.z. If Redhat's
    kernel-install script did the same it would rapidly become a non-issue.
