[Policy Change] Kernel Module packages no longer permitted



At one point (pre Fedora 8), packages containing "addon" kernel modules
were permitted. This is no longer the case. Fedora strongly encourages
kernel module packagers to submit their code into the upstream kernel
tree.

Existing kernel module packages must be removed (or merged into the main
kernel package) before Fedora 9.

The reference documentation on how to package kernel modules in the
"kmod" style has been preserved
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Obsolete/KernelModules

This change was ratified by FESCo.

Thanks,
