I chose a unique string to simplify comparisons.

Since we already have:
kernel-module-foo = 2.6.10_3smp
kernel-module-foo = 2.6.10_3smp-1.%{modulever}

Do we also want:
kernel-module-foo = %{modulever}

I think thats just asking for confusion down the line. :)

The unique variable gives us a value with no other possible definition.
