Why you need to update the perftool not the kernel, which is very likely
to be the case early on. There are ways for vendors to cope anyway - such
as by deleting the tools directory from their kernel and keeping a
separate perftool package that gets updated now and then from the kernel
tree but is otherwise a fork
