Maybe for consistency with other packages, the default "make install" should
imply modules_install too.

I know you can hack around this with /sbin/installkernel (on at least x86 and
x86_64), but it's counterintuitive. I guess the reason is that 'install' has
always meant "just the bzImage please", and sometimes it's valid to install
only a bzImage without reinstalling modules. However, it just leads to
problems such at the original poster's.
