First we need to address the problem of "multiple kernels".
Linux does this by having the modules associated with a particular kernel
in a directory whose name is kernel dependent.

After that, I personally think that we should treat the "kernel" as if it is 
just another module in the set. Rather than building a kernel, you ALWAYS
build/rebuild/install the entire set. As long as the proper Makefiles are
controlling the build, it won't be "expensive" for make to examine each
module to verify that it is up-to-date.
