is there any reason why the kernel version saved in the configuration
file is the version of the running kernel and not the version for
which the config file is for?

It's a big problem because my plan was to ship the configuration files
with the kernel RPMs in SLES. However, we don't build the kernels on
systems which run the kernel that is just built -- so that's not

I think from implementation point of view it's not a problem, that's
why I ask and didn't create a patch.
