rpm completely fails as a method to track and deploy these things correctly.  
We've got HUGE ass workarounds that make packaging a complete nightmare.  Add 
to that kmods will _always_ lag behind the kernel, by the very nature that 
they have to be built _after_ the kernel lands in a buildroot.

Those are some technical reasons.  There are many philosophical reasons too.
