Ok, lets assume, that we have a security kernel patch for Fedora-10.

On Fedora we have kernels from the 2.6.27 and from the 2.6.28 series.
This means, that you have to create seperates kernel patch modules for
each kernel release which was submitted for Fedora-10.

The reseason to do it, is that ksplice is not able to handled patches,
which may change global data structures.
