    Of course the correct solution is to have the kernel version in the file
    name... and have linux-current or whatever as a symlink. Besides truth
    be told the kernel version is far too little to identify a kernel anyway,
    there's also compilation options - they can change a lot - and all the
    patches which were/are applied to it. I keep`uname -r`,
    vmlinuz-`uname -r`, .config-`uname -r`, descr-`uname -r` in my /boot dirs
    - the first three come from the kernel and the last is a text file
    containing notes about what patches were applied (I keep an up to date
    descr file in each kernel source dir).
