The naming is very confusing. It should be:

- MK_INSTALLEXTRAKERNELS=no -> only install one
- MK_INSTALLEXTRAKERNELS=yes -> install multiple, as gjb@ described above.

Since I kicked the hornet’s nest (and imp@ complained about the NO_*), I’ll 
introduce a new WITH/WITHOUT option for this and release/release.sh can use it.
