There are certainly work-arounds for problems that shouldn't

have to change whatever the EXTRAVERSION field is? Then, when
a customer demands that the kernel version be exactly the
same that was shipped with Fedora or whatever, I'm screwed.

If you didn't have the foresight to keep that kernel version around,
there isn't much we can do to help you. Yes, this may mean you have
a big bunch of /usr/src/linux-2.6.* directories.

Wrong. Whoever put the module-loading code INSIDE the kernel,
for POLITICAL reasons, created a new POLICY.
