Summary: Update kernel and modules
Description: 
This package contains a script to conveniently update
kernel and modules.

It works by installing a new package set along with existing kernel
so that you don't end up without a kernel guaranteed to boot (your
good old one); by default, it will look for the most recent package
of the same flavour (e.g. "std-def") and try to install all the same
modules as already installed for that.
