That's the case already.

Well, we of course BuildRequire 'kernel-devel' already -- mkodtool takes
care that there is a 
BuildRequire: kernel-devel-i686 = 2.6.14-1.1776_FC4
for example. But a generic 
BuildRequire: kernel-devel
in the static part of the SRPM shouldn't hurt afaics. 

Dan, just say what you prefer and we go for it.
