Here's something that's probably even better, if it works.  rpm
already has the md5sums, I'm just not sure querying the database
during %post will already have the info we want.  Does anyone?

Oh, it also assumes that there are no blanks in pathnames within the
kernel, and that /^010....$/  is the correct regular expression to
match regular files.  It works on x86, but I haven't checked other

rpm -q --dump kernel |
awk '$5 ~ /^010....$/ { mdsums[$4] = mdsums[$4] " " $1; }
     END { for (x in mdsums) print "hardlink" mdsums[x]; }' |

Sure you could just system() hardlink, instead of piping the output to
a shell, but I wrote it this way such that you could tell what it was
going to do before actually running the command.
