No it doesn't.

Do a

git grep '".*Linux version .*"'

on the kernel, and see just how CRAP that "get_kernel_version" test is,
and has always been.

But let's hope that CIFS is never compiled into a SLES kernel. Because
this isn't worth fixing at that point, and the SLES people should just fix
their piece of crap initrd script.

And next time somebody says "random vmlinux binary" to me, I'll blacklist
their email address. You shouldn't do initrd for "random binaries". Just
pass the release name somewhere (maybe in the name of the binary, for
example, and if the name doesn't have a version in it, tough titties).
