Back in the days of 1.0, the name one was using for one's kernel
used to be #define'd. (I discovered this when I thought it would
be intelligent to name a kernel I used on several production systems
PORTAL. :-)) I notice that this doesn't seem to happen any more.
Why did we do this originally, and why did it vanish? (Well, I may
know the answer to the latter question.)
