of the kernel compilation process looks like "woodoo" to me. It seems
I have to alter some of the earlier steps but I don't know which and how.
I'm lacking the knowledge about how the kernel installation process
decides where are the files/directories from which it can deduce
what packages are installed and what should I do for it to recognize
the old named package as a new one (with ".hpfs" in the name)
or to change the dependencies of the new kernel to depend
on the old kernel-firmware instead of the new one.
I'm hesitating to install the renamed
as I'm not sure if I won't ruin something.
