Yes, everybody who has not built kernel-module-thinkpad locally from
Extras CVS :(

Right, at least three issues remain: how to name the modules, how to
make depsolvers do the right thing with them, and how to request builds
for i586 and i686 from the build system for the same package.

Probably it's better to just pull it for now.  And IIRC
configure-thinkpad will need to go too.  Will ask in the Wiki.

But we should really fix the remaining issues with kernel module builds,
I'd like to get LIRC modules shipped too, and there may be other stuff
queued up from others.  Anybody willing to (re)start or join this
discussion somewhere?  fedora-packaging?
